VIDEO: On Monday, firefighters from all over the state paid tribute to one of their own, Cal Fire Captain Chris Moyle. Moyle passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 8.
Firefighters from multiple departments welcomed Moyle’s procession with a silent salute. A flag was lifted high above the fire truck to pay tribute to Captain Moyle.
Fresno County Fire helped coordinate the effort.
“It’s an honor for us to be able to participate and to pay our respects,” said Fresno Fire Battalion Chief Devin McGuire.
The procession arrived at the Lisle Funeral Home in downtown Fresno, where Captain Moyles’ casket was escorted by his colleagues wrapped in an American flag. “It just shows the family nature of the fire service and how passionate we are about what we do, and when we lose one of our own, how devastating it is,” explained McGuire.
