      Volunteer firefighter killed in wreck

      A volunteer firefighter in Ridgeville has died in a wreck while responding to a fire call.


      RIDGEVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- A volunteer firefighter in Ridgeville has died in a wreck while responding to a fire call.


      Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet said 58-year-old Michael Louis Broz or Ridgeville died late Sunday afternoon when his pickup ran off a road and hit a tree.


      Nisbet says Broz was responding to a fire call at Beidler Forest.


      Gov. Nikki Haley requests flags be flown at half-mast on March 14 in tribute of Broze, who made the ultimate sacrifice in serving South Carolina.


      The Highway Patrol is investigating the wreck.
