The Los Angeles County Firefighter, a 21-year fire service veteran and the father of two teen boys, who died Thursday is Firefighter Jonathan Flagler. Firefighter Flagler became trapped while operating interior and was overcome by fire conditions.
A preliminary investigation suggests that the fire was contained to the attic of the building, where Firefighter Flagler was overcome. His fellow Firefighters were able to remove him from the building and attempted to treat him before he was transferred to the hospital. He later died at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
Flagler had been a firefighter for 21 years, beginning his career with the Vernon Fire Department, before moving to LA County Fire (as LA County contracted with Vernon) in October 2020. FF Flagler leaves behind a wife and two teenage sons.
