Plaque dedicated in memory of fallen firefighter
McARTHUR — A dedication ceremony was held Saturday evening at the Vinton County Courthouse for a plaque honoring the memory of McArthur firefighter Ryan Seitz, who was killed in the line of duty one year ago.
Seitz was killed after a pressurized tank on the McArthur Fire Department’s humvee unit exploded while the unit was fighting a brush fire in Londonderry on Sept. 24, 2010. Parts from that tank struck Seitz, killing him instantly. Seitz was the first McArthur firefighter killed in the line of duty.
