PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota firefighter who died in the line of duty a year ago is being honored Sunday at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Service in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

Fifty-four-year-old Presho Fire Chief Donald Manger died after suffering a medical condition while fighting a fire in rural Lyman County on Oct. 14, 2017. He had served as chief for 23 years, and had 36 years of experience as a firefighter.
