SAN DIEGO – Firefighters raised flags and stood on overpasses along Interstate 15 in San Diego Thursday in honor of a Cal Fire firefighter.

“Every bridge on the 15 has fire trucks raising flags,” Nikki Maria Romero told FOX 5. She shared video showing a fire truck ladder with an American flag flying high above the highway.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department had six engines and 20 firefighters on the Ted Williams Parkway overpass around 12:30 p.m., according to a city official.

An unnamed Cal Fire firefighter passed last week and this was their way to show respect. The circumstances of the death were not disclosed.
