New York Police Captain, Wife, 2 Daughters Perish in House Fire
A police captain, his wife and two teenage daughters died in a fire that swept through their home in New York City’s northern suburbs Tuesday morning, authorities said. One adult son managed to escape the blaze and was hospitalized.
Officials identified the captain as Thomas Sullivan, of the Larchmont Police Department. He was a former New York Police officer assigned to the Bronx, who left the city for the force in comparatively tranquil suburbs two decades ago because he felt he could make a bigger difference in a smaller community.
