Eureka., Ca-Flags from Humboldt to the State Capitol are half-mast today to honor a Cal Fire heavy equipment operator. 36 year old Braden Varney has been fighting fires for over 10 years and while fighting the Ferguson fire Varney lost his life. Matt Dennis with Humboldt Bay Fire tells us why it’s importation to honor those who put their life on the line.
“As a fire fighter you spend a third of your life with your crew, they become family. It doesn’t matter which department you are in, we are a family.”
