Fellow Ralston firefighters, law enforcement, city officials and friends and family will say goodbye to Fire Chief Kyle Ienn on Saturday. Funeral services will be held at 10 am at the Ralston High School. Fire Department spokesman Tom Negley says firefighters are a very tight community and when a tragedy happens they have no problem traveling long distances to pay respects. He says people from across the country will be traveling to Omaha to attend the service.
Negley says Ienn was very well known in the circle of firefighters nationwide and served on the board of the National Council on Fireworks Safety and on several other committees. He says many knew Ienn personally and want to show their support.
Saturday would have been Ienn’s 41st birthday. He died earlier this week in what authorities are calling a suicide.
