    Default LODD - Florida Division of Forestry

    It is with a heavy heart today that I have to inform you all that we had two DOF firefighter in the line of duty fatalities yesterday on the Blue Ribbon Fire in the Suwannee Forestry Center. Josh Burch and Brett Fulton died during a burn over while working the fire. All of our prayers and support are extended to their families and friends during this terrible time.



    Two other firefighters, Robert Marvin and Stephen Carpenter were treated and released after sustaining smoke related injuries on the same fire while attempting to assist their fellow firefighters. Both are on the way to full recovery and are at home resting now.

    Very sorry to hear about this. I have a couple of friends working a contract engine down there right now...

    Not a good week for LODD's.
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.
