On Sunday, Ecker, who was in his second year with the club, posted on X that he wanted to “publicly acknowledge @dallasfirerescue – yesterday was one of those situations you never think will happen to you. I may have lost my house, but they were able to contain the fire and keep all of the neighbors safe. It’s truly remarkable to see a group of men and women rush into a home without hesitation and do what needs to be done.”

Ecker also stated, “Dog is good, I’m good, and everything else can be replaced.”

According to a Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesperson, units responded to a one-alarm fire in the 8500 block of Ridgelea Street in Dallas at 11:05 a.m. on Saturday. Donald Ecker owns a home on the block.

The unit was able to isolate and extinguish a fire inside a wall between a bedroom and a fireplace, clearing it by 12:02 p.m., according to a spokesperson. Ecker and his dog were reportedly the only people in the house at the time.

The spokesperson stated that the fire was “accidental in nature” and started in the chimney wall.
