ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — A memorial service will be held Saturday in Albany for Jesse Trader, the firefighter who died at a southern Oregon wildfire.
The public service will be held at the West Albany High School football stadium. The family will later hold a private graveside service.
The 19-year-old from Albany was killed Tuesday when the water truck he was driving overturned at the Big Windy fire complex.
The Oregonian reports the state Public Safety Memorial Fund Board is deciding whether to give a $25,000 benefit to his family. The fund provides immediate financial help to the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters who are killed or disabled in the line of duty.
