A storm spotter / volunteer firefighter from the Seneca, MO Rural Fire Protection District has died today as a result of injuries from Saturday's EF4 tornado in western Newton County, MO.

Tyler Casey was spotting at Highway 43 and Iris Road in western Newton County, and his vehicle were tossed by the winds. He was pulled from the vehicle and was on life support until this morning. This was a LODD in the fire service, as his firefighting responsibilites with Rural Seneca Fire led him out spotting.

Tyler is survived by a two year old daughter. His fire training instructor says that Tyler was a tremendous firefighter -- one of the best, most 'up and coming' young guys in Newton County. He said that Tyler was one who always put others first. He was helping the public at large when he sustained those injuries.
