A Marshall County firefighter has died after suffering severe burns in a fire at a family property over the weekend.

The Lacon-Sparland Fire Protection District says Chaise Mangold died from his injuries Thursday morning. He was receiving care in the burn unit at a Springfield hospital. Mangold’s father was also injured in the Saturday fire.

Mangold was a firefighter with the department for more than three years.

Nearly $25,000 has been raised on a GoFundMe for the family’s expenses. Funeral arrangements haven’t yet been announced.

Chaise’s Fight

Due to the tragic incident that happened on April 10, Chaise, as well as his dad, Pat are at the hospital in Springfield. Chaise is fighting every day for his life and his family needs your support, love and prayers. The family has asked to keep their story private but updates on Chaise will be made through Kirstyn Friday’s Facebook page. 

Because of the outpouring of support and aid our community has shown, many have asked us to set up a page so that there is a way to keep supporting in every way possible. 

We thank you for all the continued support, love and prayers. Chaise needs every single one of them.

*All the money will be put for medical costs and put into Lisa Mangold’s account*
