Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Back Bay fire that claimed the lives of two Boston firefighters, Lt. Edward Walsh and Michael Kennedy. In the above WGBH-TV interview, Boston Fire Commissioner Joseph Finn, who was deputy chief at the time of the deadly blaze, offers insights into the past year, including lessons learned, and how the families of the two firefighters have valiantly responded to the loss of their loved ones.

A special thanks to all the firefighters who work to protect all of us from fire each and every day.
