Tommy Sullivan died a hero.
All four perished in the Carmel, NY blaze in their home.
Investigators are still probing the cause of the fire that killed Thomas Sullivan, 48, his wife, 47, and daughters Meaghan, 17, and Mairead, 12.
Sullivan was with the Larchmont Police force for 19 years, after serving six years with New York City police as a community patrol officer in the 47th Precinct in the Bronx.
Residents of the Village say son Thomas, Jr. and daughter Meaghan worked at Flint Park Day Camp. Tom also works at the Larchmont Dept. of Public Works.
Sullivan also coached youth baseball in Carmel.
