The funeral services for Dalhart Fire Chief Curtis Brown and Firefighter Brendan Torres who were killed Tuesday night will be held at 2:00 p.m. Monday, October 10th in the Rita Blanca Coliseum in Dalhart.

The two men died in a head-on crash involving a semi-truck.

Department of Public Safety officials says it looks like the truck smashed into a fire department vehicle while trying to pass another vehicle.

Hartley County Judge Ronnie Gordon and Dallam County Judge Wes Ritchey established Thursday, October 6th as Curtis Brown and Brendan Torres Day as recognition of their service to the communities.

The 51-year-old Brown had been with the service for 28 years while the 19-year-old Torres joined the service last year in June.
