VIDEO: Fallen Firefighters Honored at State House
Two men lost their lives in the line of duty in Massachusetts last year.
Gov. Deval Patrick presided over Tuesday evening's annual ceremony commemorating Massachusetts firefighters who have died and the 343 New York City firefighters who were killed on Sept. 11, 2001.
"We add 22 names to the ring of honor today, among them two who lost their lives on the line of duty: John Davies Sr. of the Worcester Fire Department and James Rice of the Peabody Fire Department," Patrick said at the Massachusetts Fallen Firefighters Memorial on the State House grounds. Both men died in December 2011.
