An FDNY lieutenant has died after suffering a fatal heart attack in what fire officials are treating as a line-of-duty death.
Lt. Brian J. Sullivan, 54, of Squad Company 41 in the Bronx suffered a heart attack at his home in Monroe, Orange County, after completing a 24-hour shift.
Sullivan, who was a member of the FDNY's elite Special Operations Command, had been with the department for almost three decades.
