LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A longtime Lincoln firefighter has died after battling brain cancer that was linked to his job.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/29r36Iv ) Dave Luedtke died Sunday at his home.

Interim Fire Chief Tim Linke says he’ll always remember the 51-year-old Leudtke’s dry sense of humor and dedication.

Leudtke began his firefighting career in 1987 and served at several Lincoln stations.

Luedtke’s cancer is considered linked to his work because he was exposed to known carcinogens as a firefighter.
