Public Support Sought for Cheney Firefighter

Associated Press - April 6, 2016 10:01 am

A volunteer Kansas firefighter has been hospitalized after he collapsed while working to extinguish a weekend grass fire.

The Cheney Volunteer Fire Department says the 48-year-old firefighter became unresponsive Sunday afternoon while he was operating a water truck used to battle the blaze.

Cheney Fire Chief Brad Ewy told KAKEĀ  TV the firefighter suffered a brain bleed. The man’s name hasn’t been released. He’s been in critical condition at a Wichita hospital.

Ewy says he’s been a volunteer firefighter and EMT for seven years and that a fund has been set up to help the firefighter and his family.
