    Incident Description: Firefighter Solomon was working the interior of
    a

    rapid fire progress. Shortly afterwards, Firefighter Solomon was
    rescued by others, but over 30% of his body had been severely burned.
    Solomon received advanced live saving (ALS) treatment and was
    transported to the hospital, but passed away from his injuries in the
    Grady Memorial Hospital's Burn Unit six days later.

    Funeral Arrangements: Pending (will be held in the Macon, GA area)

    Memorial Fund Contact and Address: Donations for Steven's family,
    including four surviving children, may be mailed in the name and memory
