TUCSON- Tucson Fire is mourning the loss of one of their longtime fire investigators, after Tom Quesnel lost his battle with cancer Friday night.
According to Tucson Fire, Quesnel's illness was work related.
TFD will fly flags at half-staff and members will wear shoulder shrouds in honor of Quesnel.
TFD Captain Barrett Baker says Quesnel joined TFD in 1989 and became a fire investigator in 1994. He was scheduled to retire at the end of next year.
Quesnel was nationally known for his work with accelerant-detecting K9 units.
