Flags Lowered To Half-staff

Governor Markell today ordered both the U.S. and State flags to be flown at half-staff in memory of fallen Wilmington firefighters Lt. Christopher Leach and Senior Firefighter Jerry Fickes. Both firefighters died this yesterday serving their community and fellow Delawareans valiantly, while battling a blaze in Wilmington.

Flags are to remain at half-staff until further notice.
