New Brunswick firefighters honor their fallen deputy chief and his family
New Brunswick firefighters honored their fallen deputy chief and his family Tuesday by marching in a procession to his wake.
Authorities say James DHeron was the first to arrive at the scene of a fire Friday. They say he rushed into the two-family home without his helmet or equipment to make sure everyone was awake.
DHeron left behind a wife and three grown children. His family says he was a great man and a hero. He was part of the New Brunswick Fire Department for more than 20 years.
DHerons funeral is Wednesday at St. Peters Church in New Brunswick.
