Rosa is a 17 year veteran of our department and is assigned to Station 10." Long Beach, California Fire Chief Mike DuRee announced at a press confrence this morning. Rosa is survived by a wife & 2 children.

The Long Beach Fire Department responded to a report of an explosion & fire at a retirement home 'Covenant Manor' at 600 East 4th Street. A 2nd firefighter was in stable condition & expected to recover, a civilian is in critical condition. "That's the environment that we work in today as law enforcement & firefighters" Luna said. "You go to these scenes & you never know what's on the other side of those doors. These brave firefighters went through those doors & they were unfortunately met with gunfire."

Upon arrival, just before 4am, firefighters found a sprinkler activation & multiple windows blown out. The small fire that was left was extinguished by firefighters, members were performing overhaul & checking for extension when the shots rang out.
