Funeral Wednesday for fallen NJ firefighter

January 25, 2012 8:58:31 AM PST
Streets in New Jersey came to a standstill Wednesday morning for a solemn ceremony to remember a firefighter who died in the line of duty.

Fellow firefighters lined the streets outside a church in Fords, watching as a procession of flag-draped fire trucks led the horse-drawn hearse.

Volunteer firefighter Bruce Turcotte, 58, suffered a heart attack while responding to a house fire in Woodbridge last Thursday.

Investigators say the fire was intentionally set by the homeowner, who died in the fire.
