The Boston area has suffered another kick in the gut with the announcement today of the death of a Peabody MA firefighter who was injured earlier today in a three alarm blaze at a multi-unit building.

According to fire officials and hospital spokesperson, he has been identified as 42-year old James "Jim" Rice, an 11-year veteran of his department.  He leaves behind a wife and three young children.

Brother Rice was taken to North Shore Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

He was one of the best loved firefighters on his department and very active in his hometown.  Please pause and pray for our fallen brother, and the grieving young family he leaves behind..
