Andrew “Drew” B. Price

Firefighter/EMT

On Monday, Nov. 13, 2023, firefighters responded to a fire in a four-story building. The building houses the Lincoln Station Bar and Restaurant on the ground floor and apartments on the upper floors. Firefighter/EMT Andrew “Drew” B. Price was on the roof opening up holes for ventilation when he fell through a skylight shaft. A mayday was called and Firefighter Price was immediately located; however, they needed to breach a wall to reach him. After being rescued, he was immediately rushed to the Illinois Masonic Hospital where he later died from the injuries he sustained in the fall.

Fatality status is provisional and may change as USFA contacts State Fire Marshals to verify fatality incident information.
