Wyoming fire fighter dies after suffering stroke
Wyoming Firefighter Who Suffered Stroke Dies - Firehouse
A Natrona County firefighter who suffered a stroke while responding to a grass fire last week has died.
Firefighter Adam Longo had been moved out of the ICU on Tuesday, but died Wednesday morning at Wyoming Medical Center while undergoing treatment, according to KTWO-Radio.
Longo was driving a squad truck to the station to pick up a brush truck when he fell ill on April 12.
Other firefighters in the truck were able to get control of the vehicle and bring it to a safe stop after he suffered the stroke, The Billings Gazette reported.
He was part of a crew that was responding to a grass fire near Andrea Street west of Salk Creek Highway that destroyed a small camper and burned about 3,000 square feet of grass.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
