The Chicago Fire Department is laying another veteran firefighter to rest.
On Wednesday, hundreds of firefighters wearing dress uniforms and other mourners turned out to a church on the city's South Side for the funeral of Walter Patmon Jr.
The 61-year-old firefighter suffered a fatal heart attack on Nov. 11, a short time after he returned from a fire. Both Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Fire Commissioner spoke at the service for Patmon.
Earlier this month, firefighters gathered for the funeral of Herbert "Herbie" Johnson, who was killed battling a house fire.
