Firehouse.Com News

The Fire Chief of West Desert Fire Department in Juab County, Utah was
killed in a tanker roll over June 21, 2005.

Casey Reynolds, Juab County fire warden/fire marshal, said Chief David
Allred was driving one of two trucks, a federal excess property Army
Deuce-and-a-half tanker to a safety inspection. Driving on a dirt road, the
left front tire blew out which pulled him to the side of the road. Two rear
tires blew causing the tanker to roll. The truck following Allred came upon
the scene. Allred had been killed instantly.

The Juab County Fire District is made up of a number of volunteer
departments which were consolidated in 2000 and are now paid on call. Casey
said that Allred had been the instigator in getting the West Desert
department together after a structure fire claimed the life of a child about
10 years ago. He saw the need in the remote area for a fire station and
worked with the state to get it together.

Juab County covers a large expanse in Utah. The incident location is in the
center of the state near the Nevada state line.

Keith is survived by the loves of his life, Kathy and Bec, his 12 children,
six grandchildren, his mother Elsie, his brothers and sisters.

Funeral Services will be held Saturday, June 25, 2005, 11 a.m. at the Rocky
Ridge Chapel, 151 N. East Ridge Road, Mona, UT. Friends and Family may call
