Memphis Firefighters deal with tragedy

The Memphis Fire Department is also helping its firefighters deal with the tragedy.

Memphis Fire Director Gina Sweat says this is deadliest fire the department has seen since the 1920s.

She arrived at the home shortly after she learned the tragic news to help support her team.

Thomas Malone is president of the Firefighters Union.

He knows firsthand how hard this Severson Fire tragedy has been on the men and women he represents.
