Firefighter Death On The Set Of Edward Norton's 'Motherless Brooklyn'

A foundation established to honour a firefighter who died in the September 11 attacks will contribute $100,000 for the family of a firefighter who was fatally injured on a movie set in Harlem.

St. Nick's Jazz Pub closed its doors in 2011, but Edward Norton chose to use the Harlem locale as a set for his upcoming movie Motherless Brooklyn. They weren't filming when the fire broke out. FDNY dispatched 44 fire trucks and 200 firefighters to put out the blaze.

"Motherless Brooklyn", the film being shot in the Harlem building that caught fire Thursday night, has been a passion project for Edward Norton, who spent almost 20 years trying to get the film off the ground.

Five others were also injured.

The producers noticed smoke coming up to the movie set, and their crew immediately called for help.

When news of Davidson's death first circulated, there was no indication as to how (or if) production on Motherless Brooklyn would move forward.

"We watched firsthand with astonishment as they charged into the smoke to make sure all were safely out and then fought to contain the blaze and prevent it from spreading, putting their lives on the line as they do every day", the statement read.

The stars and producers also sent their deep condolences for the loss of Davidson.

Davidson is survived by his wife, Eileen, three daughters ages 7, 3 and 1, as well as a 6-year-old son.

He added: "We lost Michael Davidson tonight". He was transported to Harlem Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries'.

"Our hearts ache in solidarity with his family", they said of the 15-year veteran of the department.

Neighborhood resident Daquan Evans, 28, told the New York Post he saw Norton at the scene.

Fire marshals and other investigators have been itching to get inside the building; but on Saturday they continued to wait as workers labored to shore up the dangerously damaged structure, cutting lumber bracing beams and carrying them inside adjacent buildings. The fire broke out around 11 p.m. on a movie set in the basement of an unoccupied residential building, New York Fire Department Commissioner Daniel Nigro told reporters in an early morning briefing. Davidson of Engine Company 69 was one of the firefighters who went into the five-story building to put out the flames, but he got separated from his unit and had lost consciousness.

"The flames were coming through the roof". This is incorrect. It appears to have started in the basement cellar of the building we were working in. It was below the garden-level of the club, Daily News reported. Edward Norton is directing from his own adapted screenplay, with an ensemble cast that also includes Alec Baldwin, Willem Dafoe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bobby Cannavale, Leslie Mann and Michael K. Williams.
