We regret to pass on that 23-year-old Forsyth Township (Mich.) Firefighter Ben Lauren was killed in the Line of Duty. At around 2130 Friday night, members arrived to a working fire in a duplex on Albatross Street. Initial reports were that a mom and two kids got out.
This fire was in Forsyth Township, Marquette County, (Upper Peninsula) Michigan. Very preliminary reports are that Firefighter Lauren was fighting the fire, operating interior on the stairs to the second floor, when he fell through and into the basement.
Firefighter Lauren was a third-generation Firefighter; his father and sister are both members as well. Much more to follow.
Our condolences to all those affected. Rest In Peace.
Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
