Governor Rick Snyder has ordered U.S. flags at the Capitol and other state buildings to be lowered to half-staff today  in honor of Brian Woehlke, a Westland firefighter who was killed on May 8th.

The 29-year-old Woehlke who was from Dearborn, died from injuries sustained while fighting a strip mall fire.

Snyder extended his condolences to Woehlke’s family and in a statement said “Brian is an example of the brave men and women who protects our communities every day, and his loss is a painful reminder of the risks they endure to keep us safe.”

Woehlke is survived by his wife Jennifer, and their daughter Ava.
