The body of a Toivola native killed while fighting a wildfire in Oregon was returned to the Copper Country Saturday evening. 

Twenty-seven-year-old Collin Hagan died when he was struck by a falling tree on Wednesday. He was working with the Craig Interagency Hotshots Unit from Craig, Colorado, at the Big Swamp fire in the Willamette National Forest.

A number of Copper Country fire departments turned out to escort his body from the Houghton County Memorial Airport to the Memorial Chapel Funeral Home in Hancock.
