      Dear Friend of the LAFD,

      It is with great sadness that the men and women of the Los Angeles
      Fire Department share word of one City of Los Angeles Firefighter
      dying this afternoon in the line of duty.

      On Wednesday, March 26, 2008 at 1:57 PM Los Angeles Firefighters were
      summoned to investigate smoke in the 8800 block of South Sepulveda
      Boulevard in the Westchester area of Los Angeles - not far from Los
      Angeles International Aiport.

      While Firefighters were performing their sworn duties, an explosion
      occurred, causing injury to two male Firefighters and one civilian.

      One of the injured Firefighters later died at the Centinela Freeman
      Regional Medical Center, Marina Campus.

      The other Firefighter and civilian are being treated at area
      hospitals.

      As dictated by Fire Department policy, a formal and detailed multi-
      agency investigation is underway to determine the exact nature of the
      explosion, as well as the precise cause and manner of the Firefighters
      death.

      The men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department thank you for
      your kind words and sentiment at this time of overwhelming sorrow and
      immense loss.

      The latest information about this incident, as well as details
      regarding memorial services will be offered via the LAFD News &
      Information blog, that can be accessed anytime via LAFD.ORG

      Respectfully Yours in Safety and Service,

      Brian Humphrey
