Firemen, Police to Escort Body of Fallen Firefighter


An impressive showing of firefighters is expected at tomorrow morning's funeral for 24-year-old Caleb Hamm of Boise, who died last week battling wildfires in Texas. Hamm collapsed while working a fireline near Mineral Wells, Texas. Hamm was a 2010 University of Idaho graduate.

A procession made up of firefighers and Boise Police will escort the body of Hamm from a Fairview Avenue funeral home to the Doubletree Riverside, where a memorial service will be held at 11 a.m.

Hamm's family has requested that, in lieu of flowers or gifts, donations be made to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
