People from the small western Ohio farm town of New Breman gathered for a prayer vigil Friday night to honor two firefighters kills in a silo explosion Wednesday. The blast occurred at the Hoge Lumber Company in New Knoxville. 40-year-old John Garman in an aerial basket and the other victim 44-year-old Kenneth Jutte, was atop the silo for wood shavings when smoldering scrap exploded, blowing the top off the concrete structure and throwing the two to the ground.
