I never met Cory Iverson, but tonight my heart breaks knowing that this 32-year-old father, husband, and fire fighter has tragically lost his life battling the massive out of control Thomas Fire.
Adding to this horrific tragedy, his wife Ashley, according to many media reports, is expecting their second child. Iverson also leaves behind a two-year-old daughter.
The Thomas Fire continues to burn and destroy everything in it’s path. The alarm bells have blared for 10 days. Destruction still reigns down with flames, and embers exploding hillsides and spectacular homes and businesses, and wildlife in it’s path.
This is a painful day here in California.
Pray for Cory, and his family.
