Wildland firefighters who died near Twsip WA identified

On August 20th I wrote about the tragic deaths of three wildland firefighters near Twsip WA on Aug 19th. Those who lost their lives are:
  • Tom Zbszewski, age 20
  • Andrew Zajac. age 26
  • Richard Wheeler, age 31
Daniel Lyon (age 25) was critically injured and is being cared for at Seattle hospital.

You may read a August 20th report from the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center about the identities of the deceased and the injured here. The Seattle Times wrote about the Zbszewski, Zajac, and Wheeler (as well as an update on Lyons injuries) in this August 20th article with photos (updated on August 23rd).
Rest in Peace. Your sacrifice won't be forgotten, prayers for your families, friends and colleagues. Heal well Daniel Lyon, prayers for your recovery.
