BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A 28-year-old Birmingham firefighter has died while serving with the Army in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, military officials said Thursday.

Jefferey J. Farrow died Tuesday in Kuwait of non-combat related injuries, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

He was assigned to the Army Reserve’s 146th Quartermaster Company from Fort Totten, N.Y.

Assistant Chief Ivor Brooks, of the Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service, said Farrow had been a member of the department since February 2002. He was not married, Brooks said.

Mayor Bernard Kincaid said flags at all city buildings would be flown at half-staff in honor of Farrow.

The soldier was called to active duty on Oct. 15, 2004, according to a press release from the mayor’s office.
