PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - Emergency responders are mourning a Hermiston firefighter who died Friday in a motorcycle crash.

The East Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1Jq02Jo) 43-year-old Jason Anteau was a husband, father of two and volunteer firefighter who worked in Oregon’s transportation department.
