    A U.S. Forest Service firefighter was killed in the Lake Tahoe area after he was struck by a tree while battling a wildfire.

    Michael Hallenbeck, 21, of Shingle Springs, California, was hit by the tree on Saturday during the initial attack on a fire that broke out south of the Echo Summit mountain pass.

    Mr. Hallenbeck is the 2nd firefighter to be killed in recent California wildfires.
