Firefighter killed in Thomas Fire remembered on the 4th anniversary of his death.
Tuesday marked four years since a firefighter made the ultimate sacrifice fighting the deadly Thomas Fire in Ventura County.
Cory Iverson was an engineer with the San Diego unit of the Cal Fire Department.
He died fighting the Thomas Fire in 2017 when he was invaded by rapidly moving flames on the east flank of the fire near Fillmore.
Iverson died of “thermal injuries and smoke inhalation,” according to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office.
He was 32 years old.
Cory is survived by his wife, Ashley, and their two daughters.
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation says Cory was known for his dedication, incredible work ethic, and passion for his job.
