OAN Newsroom - December 15, 2017

A 32-year-old firefighter who died battling the Thomas Fire in California’s Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties is identified.

Cal Fire authorities say Corey Iverson died on Thursday while in the line of duty. Iverson was part of a crew sent from San Diego County to help fight the massive wildfire. He is survived by a two-year-old daughter and his pregnant wife.

Iverson is the second person to die in the Thomas Fire. Last week, fire officials said the death of a 70-year-old woman was caused by smoke inhalation.

As of Thursday, the fire was 30% contained after destroying more than 900 structures and burning more than 242,000 acres, making it the fourth largest fire in state history.

While some evacuations have been lifted, there are still tens of thousands of structures that are threatened by the flames. Meanwhile, a Red Flag Warning from the National Weather Service is in effect through Friday morning.
