SOMERVILLE - Somerville Police are looking for the driver who struck and killed a volunteer firefighter outside a Somerville firehouse Friday night.

Police say George Kavanaugh, 75, was found in front of the Lincoln Hose Company on Friday night. He died at the hospital.

Kavanaugh, a firefighter for 50 years, was outside the fire house paying respects to another longtime firefighter who had recently died from a long battle with leukemia. 

Fellow firefighters say in the last few years, Kavanaugh stayed an active firefighter doing behind-the-scenes work, and mentoring young recruits

Kavanaugh leaves behind a wife, children and grandchildren. His funeral is scheduled for Thursday morning

Anyone with information about the fatal hit-and-run is urged to contact the Somerville police.
