An Arkansas firefighter working for a contractor in Iraq was among 2 Americans killed when a bomb exploded in Baghdad, killing 22 people.
The contractor, CTU Consulting, said Todd Venette was killed in yesterday's bombing.
Venette moved to Russellville a number of years ago from Colorado because his mother had moved to the state.
The other American killed was Brandon Thomas, whose hometown was not available.
The contractor said both men were brave and will be missed.
