(Baltimore, MD) -- Three Baltimore firefighters who died battling a massive row-house fire are being remembered on the one-year anniversary of their deaths.

Lieutenant Paul Butrim, firefighter-paramedic Kelsey Sadler and EMT-firefighter Kenny Lacayo were killed when the vacant row-home on South Stricker Street partially collapsed.

A fourth firefighter was seriously injured.

Baltimore fire stations are flying flags at half-staff today and the city observed a moment of silence this morning to mark the anniversary.

The deaths were ruled homicides, and the fire classified as incendiary, but there have been no arrests in the case.
