Flags to Fly at Half Staff Sunday through Tuesday for Fallen Godfrey Firefighter

SPRINGFIELD — Governor JB Pritzker has declared that all flags in Illinois should be flown at half-staff starting at sunrise Sunday until sunset Tuesday in honor of fallen firefighter Captain Jacob L. Ringering of the Godfrey Fire Protection District.

The 37-year-old father of three was killed earlier this week when a structure collapsed as he and his fellow firefighters were providing mutual aid at a house fire in Bethalto.
