SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez is ordering flags fly at half-staff in tribute to a firefighter found dead in a rugged area of northern New Mexico.
Martinez issued an order that flags on state buildings stay lowered starting at sunrise Wednesday in honor of Token Adams.
The flags will stay at half-staff until sundown Thursday.
The 41-year-old engine captain disappeared Aug. 30 while checking a report of smoke near Jemez (HAY-mus) Springs, where he lived with his pregnant wife and young son. He had worked with the Santa Fe National Forest for 18 months and knew the area well.
Investigators who found his body Sept. 6 say it appears he crashed his ATV.
A service for Adams is scheduled Thursday at Calvary Chapel in Albuquerque.
