Our deepest sympathies to all our brothers and sisters. Capt Laird was a helluva guy and I for one was very happy to have met him.

Local 3666 is deeply saddened to announce the passing of Captain Josh Laird. Brother Laird was injured on a house fire in Ijamsville this evening and later succumbed to his injuries sustained at the fire.

Please keep Captain Laird’s family in your thoughts and prayers as well as our DFRS family, as we mourn the loss of our colleague.

As more information about arrangements for Honoring Captain Laird’s service to his community becomes available, we will announce through appropriate Departmental and Social Media channels.

Thank you for the outpouring of support we have seen this evening. We will need that support in the coming days and weeks and it means more than you know.

Please hold your loved ones a little tighter this evening and pray for our fallen Brother.

Thoughts and prayers are with Andre and his family, co workers, friends and community. My heart is broken being Andre and I were partners and he helped me thru my time of need!!
