Lt. Bruce Britt, age 48, died in the line of duty on February 22, 2014, at a hospital in Columbia, Missouri.

Bruce was a member of the Columbia Fire Department. He had 23 years of service.

Bruce had responded to reports of a collapsing walkway at a student housing apartment building at the University of Missouri. Units responded after 4:00 a.m.
