BCFD firefighter dies in off-duty crash

Firefighters are mourning Monday after a Bernaillo County Firefighter was killed in a motorcycle crash. 

Officials say Bernalillo County firefighter Nathan Urbany was headed westbound on Alameda Sunday when he lost control and hit a guardrail.

The department announced Urbany’s death on Facebook Sunday night.

“He was strong in both mind and body, a fierce friend, a brother to those who knew him, always excited to help and to work hard until work was done,” BCFD information officer David Lujan said. 

The department and Urbany’s family are now asking for privacy as they mourn this loss.
