Today was a day of honor for fallen firefighters in Illinois. Last year just one firefighter - Chicago Firefighter Juan Bucio lost his life in the line of duty. State Fire Marshall Matt Perez says that Bucio lost his life in a diving accident trying to rescue someone in the Chicago River. He says when a firefighter dies its hits as hard as losing a loved one.
Already this year two firefighters have died, one in Godfrey and another in Christopher.
