Fallen Firefighter Receives Degree

A firefighter, killed fighting the Salisbury mill fire in March, has been awarded a posthumous degree from Central Piedmont Community College.

19-year-old Justin Monroe was close to completing a degree in fire sciences when he died. Monroe was a lieutenant with the Miller's Ferry Fire Department.

Earlier this week, U.S. Representative Howard Coble presented the degree to Monroe's parents.

Monroe was one two firefighters who died in the fire.
