ALBANY, Australia — A 45-year-old firefighter who died yesterday, three weeks after she was engulfed in flames near Albany, has been remembered as a much-loved, courageous and experienced firefighter.
Department of Environment and Conservation worker and mother-of-three Wendy Bearfoot was trapped in the fire's path after strong winds changed direction as she, a 24-year-old colleague and several other firefighters fought a blaze on a private property on October 12.
