‘Hellfire Ride’ raises money for injured firefighters

New Mexico

ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – The community came together to support the two Roswell firefighters injured in a fireworks explosion. “Hellfire Ride” honored both Jeff Strobles and Hoby Bonham Saturday.

A firefighter escort led riders to stations throughout Roswell and ended at Alien Motor Speedway where a barbecue, live concert, and other activities followed.

Strobles and Bonham were critically injured in an explosion at Roswell’s airport on June 5 that happened as firefighters were boxing up fireworks for a Fourth of July celebration. Ten other firefighters were also treated for injuries after the explosion.

All proceeds from the event went toward the firefighters.
