Service Planned for Firefighter Killed in Oregon

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, Ore. – The community of Albany will hold a memorial service on Saturday for a young firefighter killed at a southern Oregon wildfire.

Jesse Trader, 19, died Tuesday when the water truck he was driving overturned at the Big Windy fire complex.

The service will be held at the West Albany High School football stadium. The family will later hold a private graveside service.

The state Public Safety Memorial Fund Board is considering giving a $25,000 benefit to Trader's 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.
