Several members of the Roseburg Fire Department came out to honor to honor fallen Medford Firefighter Frumencio Ruiz Carapia as his procession passed through Roseburg Thursday afternoon. The 56 year-old Carapia was struck by a falling tree as he worked along the eastern edge of the Gales Fire up in Lane County. Family members told KDRV the 20-year firefighting veteran was due home on Tuesday and his wife had his favorite food already prepared for him. Carapia leaves behind his wife, 4 children and one grandchild. A GoFundMe has been set up in Carapia's name for anyone who would like to support his family: https://www.gofundme.com/f/supporting-the-family-of-fallen-wild-firefighter Here is the video of the procession travelling through Roseburg this afternoon: https://www.roseburgtracker.com/posts/612819a46a55b30004b1f263
