GREYBULL, Wyo. (AP) — A statewide fire group says the longtime chief of the Greybull Fire Department has died.

Worland Fire Chief Chris Kocher of the Wyoming Local State Assistance Team says Chief Paul Murdoch died at home on Thursday after he had spent the day helping to remove ice jams from the Bighorn River.

Kocher says Murdoch, 53, was found unresponsive at his home. He says an autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death.

He says Murdoch was a 35-year veteran of the department and had been police chief since 1998.

Kocher says: "Chief Murdoch will be greatly missed by the fire service and his community."

Murdoch is survived by his wife and two children.

Kocker says funeral services are scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at Greybull High School, 600 N. 6th St.
