Barbecue For The Families of Fallen Firefighters
On June 20th 51-year-old Brett Fulton and 31-year-old Josh Burch were killed fighting a wildfire in Hamilton County when their tractors were consumed by flames. Today, people from around North Florida traveled to White Springs to celebrate their lives and raise money for the families, with live music and tasty barbecue. Since their deaths members of the community have shown an outpouring of support for both families helping to make this tough time a little easier.
Proceeds from today's event will benefit the families of Fulton and Burch and the Wildland Firefighter Foundation.
