AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Fire Department tweeted that it lost one of its own Saturday night.
AFD says 39-year-old Fire Specialist Chris Lafferre died in his home after suffering some kind of a “cardiac event.”
The fire department is asking people to keep his loved ones in their thoughts and prayers.
Note: The Austin Fire Department originally listed Lafferre’s age as 41 but corrected that in an email on Feb. 24. He was 39 years old.
