This is video from Julie Miklaszewicz who runs RVing Outpost, LLC – On-Line Store! and also took the still pictures of yesterday's fire in Abbotsford, Wisconsin that killed Colby Fire Department Lt. Jamison Kampmeyer.
Lt. Kampmeyer, who was also a deputy sheriff in Marathon County, was 34 and leaves behind a wife and three young children.
“There's a lot of confusion right now as to why it had to happen,” (Abbotsford Fire Chief Jody) Apfelbeck said.
The fire chief said while attacking flames from inside the theater, the call went out to crews to get out of the building but some didn’t get the warning in time.
“The roof collapsed, trapping three firefighters inside. One firefighter, Jamison Kampmeyer of Colby, a volunteer with the Colby fire Department and a deputy with the Marathon County Sheriff's Department was fatally injured,” Apfelbeck said.
A memorial fund has been established in honor of firefighter who lost his life Sunday during a fire in Abbotsford.
