FOX 5 NY's Robert Moses joins NewsNOW from FOX the morning after a deadly fire broke out at an assisted living facility in Rockland County, NY.

The body of a firefighter missing in a Rockland County blaze at an assisted living facility that also took the life of a resident was discovered in the debris late Tuesday night.

The remains of Spring Valley Firefighter Jared Lloyd, 20, were escorted by fire trucks to the medical examiner's office. A briefing by fire officials on the recovery was expected later Wednesday.

"This is an extraordinarily difficult time for the fire services within Rockland County," Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann wrote in a Facebook post. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the bravest and the fellow firefighters of Spring Valley who lost a brother."

Video from the scene Tuesday at the 200-capacity Evergreen Court Home for Adults in Spring Valley shows the fire engulfing the building. 20- 30 residents had to be rescued, said Rockland County Fire Coordinator Chris Kear. There were 112 seniors living at the facility at the time of the fire.
