Visitation to be held for former suburban firefighter

A visitation will be held Tuesday for a firefighter from the Chicago area, who was killed in a fertilizer plant explosion.

Kevin Sanders was among the first responders who died in West, Texas, nearly two weeks ago.

Sanders was a former resident of Palos Hills and Plainfield.

He had served with Plainfield’s emergency management agency for about five years, where he assisted police with big events and traffic control.

He moved to Texas several years ago.

Visitation is Tuesday afternoon at the Plainfield Administration Headquarters.

The funeral is Wednesday at Sacred Heart Church in Palos Hills.
