A Community Continues to Heal
Published June 25th, 2013
It's been two years since the Florida Forest Service lost two firefighters.
But last Thursday's memorial proves they haven't been forgotten.
Two years ago this month, Brett Fulton and Joshua Burch were killed while fighting a fire in Hamilton County.
The men were honored with a commemorative monument outside of their Florida Forest Service Center in Lake City.
The director of the Florida Forest Service says the community is still in the process of healing.
"Losing two people like that, that mean so much to this center, it was a significant tragedy to all of us, their family, the organization. It's been two years of healing and we've still got a ways to go.
In addition to the monument... A portion of State Road 6 has been named in honor of the two men.
