Dallas firefighter's death questioned in TV news report
Industrial Fire World publisher David White contributed to a report aired in September by KTVT-11 questioning the circumstances surrounding the line-of-duty death of Dallas firefighter Stanley Wilson in May.

DALLAS - The first call came in at 2:55 on the morning of May 20 -- an apartment fire, a big one ... and getting bigger ... in Northeast Dallas.
