The Arkansas Fallen Firefighter's Memorial will hold a candlelight vigil for Jacksonville firefighter Capt. Donald Jones, who was killed earlier this week in what Jacksonville police say was an intentional act by a driver who ran down Jones and two other emergency responders at an accident scene. Jacksonville Police Officer Daniel DiMatteo and Firefighter/Engineer Jason Bowmaster remain hospitalized with serious injuries.

The vigil for Jones will be held Thursday night from 9 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. at the Arch Street Fire Department at 15923 Arch Street Pike in Little Rock, where the Arkansas Fallen Firefighters Memorial statue is on display. Candles will be provided.
