Donations Will Honor Fallen Burlington Firefighter

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

The family of fallen Burlington firefighter Colin McFadden and the Burlington Fire Department say they have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of support since his death on Thursday.

He died two days after suffering a medical emergency while at the scene of the New Hartford House fire on Tuesday morning. Doctors found McFadden had a rare form of leukemia, which had gone undiagnosed.

In lieu of flowers, the Burlington Fire Department is asking that donations be made to different organizations that influenced McFadden and helped shape him into someone dedicated to serving the community.
