Service announced for fallen York City firefighters
A celebration of life service will be held for York City firefighters Ivan Flanscha and Zachary Anthony one year after they died.
Flanscha, 50, and Anthony, 29, died after a wall collapsed March 22, 2018, while they were at the former Weaver Piano & Organ Co. building at 127 N. Broad St.
York City said in a news release that the service will be held at 7 p.m. Friday, March 22, at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 839 W. Market St.
Additionally, the Kiltie Band of York will perform in front of the church at 6:30 p.m.
Flanscha had been with the department since 1999, and Anthony had been there since 2010. They were among a group of four firefighters in the building dealing with hot spots from a fire the day before. The two other firefighters suffered injuries that were not life-threatening.
They were the 12th and 13th members of York City Fire Department to fall in the line of duty.
