As Fred Van Camp, an eight-year Tucson firefighter, was making sure that he had extinguished the fire in a garbage truck, the driver of the truck, unaware of the fireman’s presence, lowered the truck’s body onto Van Camp, killing him.

This firefighter line of duty fatality occurred before the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial was built in Emmitsburg, Maryland. While this firefighter has not been officially honored at the Memorial site, there are plans to do so when resources are available.
