BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra spoke Monday at the funeral for Hartford Firefighter Kevin Bell, who died in the line of duty Oct. 7, 2014.

“I’ve been thinking a lot about what a close community we really are. I spent time with Kevin’s family. They were very close. I can tell by the pictures around me and speaking with those who knew him, he was a very special person.

Kevin Bell was born in Hartford. He was a graduate of Weaver. He went to high school with some of the members of the City Council.

He worked in the public schools before becoming a firefighter. He was friends with so many who lived within Hartford. He was a member of our community.”
