Service to honor fallen York firefighters

York

A celebration of life service will be held for two fallen firefighters one year after their deaths. 

Last year there was a fire at the Old Weaver Organ and Piano building on North Broad Street in York. 

On March 22, 2018, the following day, Flanscha and Anthony were part of a crew that returned to the building to put out hotspots. While on the fourth floor, it collapsed without warning trapping them and two other firefighters. 

Flanscha and Anthony died. 

Franscha was 50 and was a 20-year veteran of the department.

Anthony was 20. His first job was with the department. He had been on the job for nearly eight years. 

The celebration of life service will be held on Friday at St. Matthew Lutheran Church on West Market Street in York at 7 p.m.
