Oklahoma Firefighter’s Death Under Investigation

A fight at a Strother Fire Department (OK) firehouse has left one person dead and another under investigation, reports NewsOn6.com.

At this point, Sheriff Shannon Smith says they are calling this a suspicious death. Captain Dale Patterson, a chaplain for the Strother Fire Department, died from an injury he received during an altercation at the Strother Fire Department around 1:30 a.m. Thursday morning.
NewsOn6.com reports that the crew had just returned from a service call when Patterson and another firefighter got into a fight.

Patterson reportedly hit his head causing significant injury. He was first taken to Seminole Medical Center, and then transported to OU Medical where he later died.

Strother Fire Chief Nicholas Nadeau says the department is small, with only 19 firefighters, so everyone is trying to cope with the loss.
