Firefighters show their spirit on 210 Freeway overpasses in La Canada & Pasadena

I was very moved this morning to see that firefighters had parked their trucks on the overpasses to the 210 Foothill Freeway between La Canada and Pasadena. The most impressive was the bridge at the Angeles Crest Highway exit, where they’d hung an American flag on an extended ladder. At each overpass there was an American flag hanging, and firefighters standing at attention. I honked in support.

Here are some pictures. They’re not the highest quality, but they show the magnitude of this effort. Note that in the last one, taken in Pasadena, you can see the smoke from the fire in the background.

  1. I posted about this today too, with photos, and couldn’t stop weeping as I wrote it. God bless the families of these fallen firefighters.
