Firefighter revived from coma

August 19, 2013

An Indianapolis firefighter who was placed under a medically induced coma after he was critically injured last week has been revived and may leave the hospital as early as Wednesday. Chris McGrone, 38, suffered severe smoke inhalation after his mask came off during a fire Friday at a vacant home in the 1500 block of Columbia Avenue. Doctors removed his breathing tube Monday morning. Investigators believe the home was being used for illegal gambling and that the fire was intentionally set.
