We regret to notify you of the line-of-duty death of Firefighter Jeffery Blackmer of the Hamilton Township Volunteer Fire Company (Muncie, Indiana area). Firefighter Blackmer was found dead in the firehouse around 9:45 a.m. this morning after his fiancee had become concerned that he had not returned home after battling a barn fire. He had died of an apparent heart attack while cleaning his gear following the run.
He is survived by a daughter (7), son (11), and his fiancee.
