  • Don Billig-St. Cloud, Minnesota

    My prayers go out to the family and friends of Don Billig. May he rest in peace!

    ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A firefighter with the St. Cloud
    volunteer division died while on duty late Monday from injuries
    received in a vehicle crash near St. Augusta.
    Don Billig, an assistant chief in the volunteer division, was
    replacing a barricade blocking a construction zone when a driver
    struck his crew's truck, which then hit Billig, said Dennis
    Ballantine, St. Cloud police chief.
    Billig, 49, is the first St. Cloud firefighter killed in the
    line of duty, said Mayor John Ellenbecker.
    Billig was an 18-year veteran in the department and leaves
    behind a wife and three children, one of whom also works for the
    volunteer division, Ellenbecker said.
    The driver of the pickup that hit the fire truck left his truck
    at the scene of the crash and fled on foot, Ballantine said.
    Members of several law enforcement agencies spent hours
    searching for the driver of the pickup that hit Billig's fire
    truck, which was a heavy duty pickup outfitted to fight grass
    fires.
    He turned himself in to St. Cloud police Tuesday morning and was
    being held in Stearns County Jail.
    Ballantine said the 36-year-old man could be charged with hit
    and run after the investigation is finished.
