It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of our very own, Battalion Chief Edward Karriem.

The Little Rock Fire Department responded to a house fire at 9925 Stardust Trail, Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 10:52 a.m. Upon arrival on the scene, firefighters reported smoke visible from the one story wood-frame residential structure. Rescue and Firefighting operations began immediately.

Eight (08) pieces of Fire/Rescue equipment and approximately nineteen (19) emergency response personnel ultimately responded to the call. Battalion Chief Edward Karriem was the commanding officer of this incident. The fire was brought under control at 11:22 a.m. There were no civilian injuries. The origin and cause of the fire is under investigation.

During firefighting/overhaul procedures, Battalion Chief Edward Karriem (41yo) was observed to be unresponsive in his Command vehicle; fire crews performed CPR and MEMS transported him in critical condition to Baptist Hospital where he was later pronounced deceased. The cause of death is pending the Medical Examiner’s Report. Chief Karriem faithfully served this city and the Division of Fire Services for seventeen (17) years. Our sincere prayers are extended to the family, loved ones and friends.
