We regret to pass on that a Christopher (Southern Illinois, SE of St Louis, MO) Firefighter was killed in the Line of Duty this morning.
Initial reports are that Firefighter Kody Van Fossan died in the Line of Duty in a fire with collapse and his father (a Fire Officer) was reportedly injured in the furniture store building.
Much more to follow.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
HERE is early video from the scene:
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
