Hundreds Pay Tribute To Fallen Boise Firemen
Several hundred people turned out at the Linen Building in downtown Boise Thursday night for a memorial to honor firefighters Ron Chambless and Todd Tompkins. They were killed June 3 when their Lockheed P2V air tanker crashed as they helped fight a wildfire near the Utah-Nevada border. Just before the memorial, the men were honored with a procession of cars, fire trucks, motorcycles and other vehicles. Family members held a service for Chambless on June 10 in his native Texas. A service for Tompkins will be held Saturday in Washington.
