    NY - FDNY Chief Michael Fahy, 44, killed in building explosion, Sept 2016 *Arrests*


    Firefighters responded shortly before 6:30 Tuesday morning to a report of a potential gas leak at 300 West 234th St. in the Kingsbridge neighborhood, a fire department spokesman said.

    Upon arrival, firefighters discovered what appeared to be a marijuana grow house in the building, and reported it to police at 7 a.m., law-enforcement officials said. Firefighters and police were in the process of evacuating the home when the explosion occurred, officials said.

    A second suspect was arrested Wednesday in connection with the Bronx drug house explosion that killed a beloved FDNY battalion chief, sources said.

    The man, identified as Garibaldi Castillo, 32, is expected to be charged with two counts of felony marijuana possession, sources said.

    Investigators were still grilling Julio Salcedo, 34, who is believed to be a renter at the pot-filled home that blew up Tuesday.

    Lt. JonPaul Augier, of Ladder Company 1, described Fahy as a "brilliant guy" who "graduated at the top of his class from New York Law School."

    "He passed the (New) Jersey and New York State bar exam in the same (month)," Augier said.

    But Fahy also knew how to have a good time.

    "At 3'o clock in the morning after coming back from an alarm, Mike Fahy would break out the guitar," Augier recalled. "He'd sing to us, play the guitar, jam a little bit."

    RIP Chief Fahy
