Family, friends and fellow firefigters said goodbye Friday to a District of Columbia firefighter who died after battling a high-rise apartment fire.
The funeral service for Lt. Kevin McRae was held at the D.C. Armory at 11 a.m. Following the funeral service, a funeral procession for McRae traveled through the District from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m.
McRae collapsed last Wednesday after helping to extinguish an apartment fire. He was taken to a hospital, where he died.
The 44-year-old McRae joined the department in 1989 after serving as a fire cadet in high school. He was the 100th District firefighter to die in the line of duty.
