USFA: Alabama On-Duty Death 04.29.2013

Firefighter Dale Scott Queen, 37, on April 29, 2013 at 1830hrs, became ill while working a call of an explosion in the area. Aid was rendered to Firefighter Queen by fellow responders and he was transported to the hospital but succumbed from a type of injury still  to be reported.

His cause of death is unknown, although it was not related to the search for potential explosives in the woods on Ironman Road near Alabama 36, said Oak Ridge Fire Chief Stephen Maples.

"Dale was as good a man as you would find," Chief Maples said. "He was there if you needed him. All you had to do was call him. Dale loved helping people."  

Dale Scott Queen is survived by his wife, Elizabeth, and their sons, Tanner, 14; Dakota, 13; and Avery, 9.

Our condolences to the Queen Family & Friends, the Oak Ridge Volunteer Fire Department and to all affected by Firefighter Dale Scott Queen's passing.
