Two Los Angeles County firefighters, Captain Ted Hall and Specialist Arnie Quinones, died during the Station Fire. A public memorial for them is scheduled Saturday morning at Dodger Stadium.

L.A. County firefighter Karen Zakowicz worked at Camp 16 in the Angeles National Forest where the two firefighters lost their lives. She knew Arnie Quinones.

Karen Zakowicz: "Well, he’s just like a gung-ho happy guy. He was just like ready to go. I never saw him without a smile on his face, and his mantra was 'first in, last out,' and that’s what happened. So... it’s just hard."

Zakowicz is helping to sell T-shirts in memory of Hall and Quinones. Proceeds from the sales will go to help their families.
