McLean County firefighter honored by foundation

HUDSON - A new foundation that would help first responders' families is also being created as a memorial to a fallen firefighter from McLean County.

The Chris Brown Foundation will honor Chris Brown, a volunteer firefighter who died while on duty after a semitrailer truck crashed into the scene of an accident in 2013.

Chris Brown's father, Mike Brown, said the foundation will provide financial help and support to families of first responders who suffer an illness or are injured because of an incident while on duty.
