WALLINGTON - Gov. Chris Christie has ordered that all flags across New Jersey fly at half-staff in honor of fallen firefighter Gregory Barnas.
Capt. Barnas died last week after falling off the roof of a restaurant while fighting a fire as a volunteer with the Wallington Fire Department.
Barnas was born in Passaic and raised in Wallington, where he was a life-long resident.
Flags will fly at half-staff today through next Wednesday, March 12.
Barnas was a 29-year veteran of the Jersey City Fire Deparment. His funeral will be held tomorrow.
