On December 2, 2012, Firefighter Timothy P. Jansen of the Santa Fe Fire Protection District died in the line of duty at the scene of a residential fire in Bartelso, Illinois. Jansen and other firefighters responded to the scene in a fire department pumper truck. As Jansen was pulling hose from the rear of the apparatus, he slipped and fell to the ground. Not aware that Jansen was still behind the vehicle, the engineer backed the apparatus and struck him. Jansen subsequently died from his injuries.
Jansen was a 15 year veteran of the Santa Fe Fire Protection District and was the owner and operator of a Bartelso restaurant. He was survived by his widow and two daughters.
