Fallen New Carlisle Firefighter Services

Hundreds paid their respects to the family and friends of a firefighter tragically killed earlier last week. Visitation for New Carlisle Assistant Fire Chief Jamie Middlebrook was Sunday at Bethel College. The visitation began with an honor guard of firefighters presenting a folded American flag and note of appreciation to Middlebrook’s memorial. The former assistant chief had been accompanied 24/7 since his death Tuesday night, an honor owed to every fallen firefighter or police officer. According to WNDU, The lines outside of Bethel College's Everest-Rohrer Chapel and Fine Arts Center extended down the sidewalk and stayed that way for several hours.  Funeral services will begin at 11 a.m. at Bethel College this morning, followed by a 23 mile procession from Mishawaka to New Carlisle.
