LAFD Mourns Fallen North Carolina Colleagues

Friday, March 07, 2008 |

The men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department mourn the loss of two North Carolina Firefighters today in a blaze that erupted at a Salisbury millworking firm.

The ultimate sacrifice of Victor Isler and Justin Monroe represents the 27th and 28th U.S. Firefighters to die in the line of duty this year, in what is the first multi-Firefighter fatality incident of 2008.

There were 115 on-duty firefighter fatalities in the United States in 2007.

Please join us in offering your thoughts and prayers for the families of the fallen and their colleagues at the Salisbury Fire Department.
