Kitzhaber Orders Flags Lowered

SALEM, Ore. — Governor Kitzhaber has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast on Saturday in honor of fallen firefighter Jesse Trader.

Trader was killed while fighting the Big Windy Fire on Tuesday when the water truck he was driving rolled into a ditch. He was 19 years old.

Trader graduated from West Albany High and had recently been accepted into the elite Fire Protection Program at Chemeketa Community College.
