Memorial services are planned for two of the men who died recently while working on Oregon wildfires.

KTVZ in Bend reports that a public service for 19-year-old Jesse Trader will be held Saturday at the West Albany High School football stadium.

Trader was killed last week in a water truck crash at the Big Windy fire complex in Southern Oregon.

Tuesday, mourners will honor John Hammack, a 58-year-old tree faller who was killed August First while working on a fire west of Sisters.

Gov.John Kitzhaber has ordered flags at public buildings to fly at half-staff in Hammack’s honor Tuesday.
