Rose City Firefighter Dies Following Morning Crash

A firefighter who served with the Rose City Area Fire Department for almost 60 years was killed in a car crash Tuesday morning.

Right now it’s not clear how the crash happened, but we do know that Les Wiley ultimately died from his injuries Tuesday.

We’re still working to find out if anyone else was hurt in the crash that happened outside the fire department Tuesday morning.

Just months ago in May, Wiley was honored by the Gleaner Life Insurance Society for his years of service.

We are sitting down with firefighters that worked along Les and will share their emotional memories on 9&10 News at 11.
