A Los Angeles Fire Department firefighter died at his home, authorities announced Thursday, but not details were released.

“With heavy hearts, we announce that active-duty Firefighter III Kenneth Brink passed away off-duty in his home on November 9, 2022,” LAFD spokesman Nicholas Prange said in a statement.

“Kenneth was a 15-year veteran of the Los Angeles Fire Department,” Prange said. “He was highly respected department-wide, as a member of Fire Station 88, Urban Search and Rescue Task Force, and LAFD’s Swiftwater Rescue Team.

“This is a tremendous loss and will be felt across our entire department. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, family, friends, and fellow firefighters. Rest in peace, Firefighter Brink.”
