PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - It was a solemn remembrance in Northeast Philadelphia tonight on the two year anniversary of a firefighter's death. Lieutenant Joyce Craig was the city's first female firefighter killed in the line of duty.
Many came out to Engine 64 to honor and remember Lieutenant Craig. She was just 36 years old when she lost her life battling a fire at a two-story row home in West Oak Lane in December 2014.
The mother of two is remembered as a hard worker who was devoted to her community. Craig was an 11-year-veteran.
