UPDATE: Governor offers sympathy to family of firefighter killed in Abbotsford


Authorities had not yet released the name of the firefighter who was killed Sunday when Governor Scott Walker sent out his condolences over social media.

Around 8:00 a.m. Monday, Walker tweeted, "Our prayers are with family of Marathon Co Deputy Sheriff Jamison Kampmeyer who died as a volunteer fire fighter."

The Governor later removed the posting. A spokesman did not respond to our request for comment.
Jamison Kampmeyer died Sunday while fighting a fire at the Abby Theatre in Abbotsford. He was a Marathon County Sheriff's Deputy and a volunteer firefighter in Colby.
