Search and rescue efforts continue for a missing off-duty Auburn firefighter who fell off his paddleboard on Cle Elum Lake Saturday.
According to reports, strong winds and waves may have knocked the 34-year-old man off his paddleboard while he was with friends.
One of his friends told Kittitas County Sheriffs that the missing man was not wearing a life jacket. The victim’s friend, who lost sight of him, was pulled to safety by a nearby boater and called 911, according to firerescue1.com.
Authorities have not released the name of the firefighter.
