HOUSTON – A Houston firefighter is in an Intensive Care Unit due to coronavirus complications and another is in the hospital for observation, according to Houston Fire Chief Sam Peña.

@HoustonTX, DO NOT let your guard down. Help protect yourself & others. Wash your hands often and wear your mask,” Peña tweeted.

“A crew member at his station also tested positive,” the Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association tweeted Sunday. “We are in contact with the hospitalized member’s family. Please keep him, his family and friends, and his crew in your thoughts at prayers. Please stay safe.”
