5/5/2019
Kody Vanfossan Firefighter Christopher Fire Department Christopher, Illinois Age: 24 Gender: Male Status: Paid-on-Call Years of Service: 7 Date of Incident: May 5, 2019 Date of Death: May 5, 2019 Firefighter Kody Vanfossan responded to a multi-alarm two-story vacant structure fire in Christopher, Illinois. Upon arrival, heavy smoke could be seen coming out of the top floor of the structure. Vanfossan, along with a second firefighter, began an interior attack on the fire. An additional firefighter later called for the two firefighters to exit the building. As the two firefighters started down steps in the rear of the building, the steps collapsed. While the second firefighter was able to make it out of the building, a Mayday was issued for Vanfossan. Vanfossan was recovered from the building and placed into an ambulance where he was pronounced deceased. Investigation into the incident continues.
