Flames erupted late Thursday night at a Harlem building being used as a set for a movie directed by Edward Norton.


Davidson, who was assigned to the nozzle with the responsibility of operating a hoseline to suppress the fire, became separated from his fellow firefighters as conditions rapidly were deteriorating.

Officials say after a desperate search to locate Davidson, he was transported to Harlem Hospital where he died.

Davidson comes from a family of firefighters, including his father and brother. He is survived by his wife and four children.
