Fallen Firefighter Remembered

The only firefighter to die in the line of duty in one Eastern Carolina city was remembered Tuesday morning for giving his life to save another.

It's been thirty years since lieutenant Jerry Mills died while battling a fire on Dalebrook Circle in Greenville. He was just 27 years old when he fell through the roof of the burning home and died.

Tuesday firefighters from across the city honored his memory by laying a wreath at a memorial garden at fire station three.

Mills left behind a wife and daughter. They were presented with red roses and lots of love and hugs from their family of firefighters.
