A Cal Fire firefighter who suffered serious burns when his truck was overrun by flames battling the Klamathon Fire near the California-Oregon border was released Sunday by doctors at the UC Davis Burn Center.
Brandon Feller was on the fire line Thursday when his engine was burned over and he suffered burns to his face. He was one of three firefighters injured battling the rapidly growing wildfire. “The injured firefighter did suffer some severe burns,” said Phil Anzo, the Cal Fire Siskiyou Unit chief and Siskiyou County fire warden.
Feller was flown to UC Davis ICU Burn Center in Sacramento where he had recovered enough by Sunday night to be released. A Gofundme account was set up for Feller to make up for his lost wages.
