Community gathers for fallen firefighter's funeral


Firefighters, law enforcement and community members will gather Friday at 11:00 a.m. to remember fallen firefighter Jamison Kampmeyer.

Kampmeyer died on Sunday fighting a fire at the Abby Theatre in Abbotsford. Part of the roof collapsed, trapping him inside.

In addition to serving as a volunteer firefighter, Kampmeyer worked as a deputy for the Marathon County Sheriff's department. The sheriff hired Kampmeyer himself.

Funeral services will be at Colby High School.

Flags statewide are at half mast to honor Kampmeyer.
