The firefighter died after he was rushed to a local hospital, the department said in a statement posted to Facebook.

"So that the Appleton Fire Department and his family knew that even though he's not there at home, that he is guarded and we all feel that loss with them and for them", said Jones. The man was given help on the bus, then eventually left and started walking toward a nearby library.
