A third firefighter death in northern California

An unidentified firefighter died Saturday while working on the Panther fire south of Happy Camp on the Klamath National Forest in northern California. There has been no official release of the person's name at this time.

This follows the death of Andrew Palmer, a National Park Service firefighter who died on Friday, struck by a falling tree, and Robert Roland, a volunteer with the Anderson Valley Fire Department who collapsed on the fireline due to a heart attack on July 3 and died a few hours later.
