Our hearts are with his loved ones.BREAKING: A Summit Fire & EMS firefighter fell to his death early this morning from the rooftop of a five-story condo building at Copper Mountain where he was battling a fire.

Ken Jones, 46, a beloved 20-year veteran of the fire department, had climbed to the roof in search for access to the fire reported just before 2 a.m.

“He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. He was a firefighter’s firefighter,” said Summit Fire & EMS Chief Jeff Berino. “He’s been a valued member of our family for many years.”
