Westporters Pay Tribute to Fallen Bridgeport Firefighters

WestportNow.com Image
Westporters were among thousands paying tribute today at funeral services in Bridgeport for two fallen Bridgeport firefighters. First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff, Chief Christopher Ackley and Deputy Chief Jonathan Gottfried led the Westport contingent that included many off-duty firefighters. Other off-duty firefighters helped man Bridgeport firehouses while their Bridgeport counterparts attended the services, including the one above at St. Augustine Cathedral for Lt. Steven Velasquez, 40. A later service was held for Firefighter Michel Baik, 49,  at St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church. The two died Saturday while fighting a house fire.
