    Unhappy Wildland Firefighter- Rick Lupe LODD

    PHOENIX (AP) - A firefighter widely credited with helping save
    Show Low from the ravages of last year's Rodeo-Chediski fire died
    Thursday of injuries suffered in a prescribed burn.
    Rick Lupe, 43, had been hospitalized for more than a month after
    he suffered third-degree burns over 40 percent of his body during a
    prescribed burn operation near Whiteriver on the Fort Apache Indian
    Reservation.

    Among Mr. Lupe’s survivors are his wife, Evelyn, and three sons, Sean, Daniel and Brent.

    I extend my sincere condolences to Rick's family, friends and fellow firefighters. May our dear brother rest in everlasting peace!
