Service Held For Firefighter

Hundreds of people paid their respects on Wednesday to the second of two Kuna firefighters killed last week when a wind-whipped range fire overtook their tanker truck.

Eighteen-year-old Josh Oliver’s funeral came a day after services for firefighter Bill Buttram.

A memorial service honoring both men was set for today. Gov. Phil Batt was scheduled to attend.

Just as when two McCall smoke jumpers died last summer in Colorado, colleagues of the Kuna men took part in debriefing sessions with mental-health professionals to get their emotions out in the open.
