GOV. MALLOY DIRECTS CONNECTICUT FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF IN HONOR OF HARTFORD FIREFIGHTER

(HARTFORD, CT) - Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that he is directing State of Connecticut flags to half-staff in honor of the Hartford firefighter who passed away Tuesday night while fighting a house fire in the city.

"Last night's tragic events are another reminder of the incredible sacrifice that our state's first responders make on a daily basis," Governor Malloy and Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman said in a joint statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the hero we lost and those who were injured in the line of duty in our capital city."

Flags will remain at half-staff until services are held, the date of which has not been determined.
