Two Manchester (UK) Teens Arrested After Firefighter Dies

Two 15-year-old girls have been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after a firefighter was killed tackling a fire in Manchester (UK), reports BBC News.

Stephen Hunt was among 60 firefighters called to the fire in the store-room of Paul’s Hair World in Oldham Street.

A spokesman said the 38-year-old got into difficulty along with another firefighter and both were taken to hospital. He was confirmed dead in hospital.
