It is with deep sadness that we at the Stepney Volunteer Fire Company acknowledge the passing of Hartford firefighter Kevin Bell. Firefighter Bell was a 6-year veteran of the Hartford Fire Department and was assigned to Engine 16 on Blue Hills Avenue. He died in the line of duty battling a house fire on Blue Hills Avenue on October 8 2014. He leaves his wife Wayatte Statham-Bell and their daughter Racquel Bell. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Firefighter Bell and his family.
