LYNN, Ala. — Driver/Engineer Larry Harbin died Thursday afternoon after working at the scene of a wildland fire, the Lynn Fire Department announced on Facebook.

EMS providers with the department and with Regional Paramedic Service treated him, but Harbin died at Lakeland Community Hospital.

Harbin, 65, was a volunteer firefighter with Delmar for years and had moved to Lynn five months ago, CBS 42 reported.

“His loss is going to be felt for a very long time,” Lynn Fire Chief Tim Harris said. “I know those shoes will never be replaced and they’re going to be very hard ones to come close to fill.”
