    ShareThis

    Wednesday, September 8, 2010 A Kentucky Wildland Firefighter has been seriously injured with burns and blunt force trauma yesterday morning while working a 12-acre wildfire in Livingston County. Don Lam, Forest Ranger Technician for the Kentucky Division of Forestry is currently in serious condition at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville after being airlifted following the accident. Initial investigations report that Ranger Lam was struck by a rolling log, a burning snag approximately 10 ft in length that broke loose and rolled off a bluff. The impact has left Ranger Lam unconscious and with serious injuries including second degree burns.

    Lets keep Ranger Technician Don Lam in our prayers.Heal quickly my brother!

      Best wishes to Brother Lam for a speedy and full recovery from his injuries.
      Crazy, but that's how it goes
      Millions of people living as foes
      Maybe it's not too late
      To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

        That's awful! Something similar happened to one of the guys at my station. We were all worried about him, but luckily he was ok. We'll be praying for Don!

          Sadly we lost Don today due to complications from his accident. He was a great man and a better Uncle. He fought wildfires from Oregon to Kentucky it was something that he always loved. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him.
