COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- The firefighter who died while helping to evacuate an apartment complex in Columbia will be remembered with services on Thursday.

Memorial services for Lt. Bruce Britt will be Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Crossing Church in Columbia.

Britt, a 23-year veteran of the Columbia Fire Department, died Saturday when a walkway collapsed as he was evacuating people from the University Village Apartments. He was trapped beneath rubble when the walkway collapsed.

No residents were injured in the fire.

The apartment complex, built in 1956, houses students with children, married students, single graduate students and students older than 21.
