A firefighter from the Bend Fire Department was killed in an accident on Highway 26. Rhett Larsen wasn’t on duty at the time of the crash Sunday afternoon- and officials say he was Eastbound on the highway when a bear ran out in front of his motorcycle.  He couldn’t avoid the bear, was thrown from his motorcycle, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
