DALLAS (AP) A veteran Dallas firefighter has died after being trapped while battling a six-alarm blaze at a condominium complex.
Dallas Fire-Rescue officials identified the victim of Monday's blaze as 51-year-old Stanley Wilson. Wilson had been a Dallas firefighter for 28 years.
A U.S. flag covered Wilson's body when it was located and removed from the rubble about six hours after the fire started before dawn Monday.
Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans says two firefighters were transported to a hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening. Two residents were treated for minor smoke inhalation.
Authorities are trying to determine what sparked the fire that damaged about two dozen units.
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings says Wilson was a hero who laid down his life for citizens.
