Volunteer Fire Chief Laid to Rest

STATELINE (WIFR) -- Hundreds of Stateliners gathered today to lay a fallen hero to rest. 69-year-old Thomas Ragnar passed away on Friday, after spending virtually his entire life as a volunteer firefighter, EMT and even chief for the Northwest Fire Protection District. His family says he was passionate about serving the Stateline. Instead of flowers, we're asked to donate to the volunteer fire department in his name.
