Firefighters in Mourning

Last night was the funeral and memorial for Gabriel Lara Espinoza, the 25 year old fireman who died in the fire on Cerro La Cruz last Tuesday night. He was a member of the 4th Fire Brigade here in Valparaiso. In an emotional display of solidarity for their fallen comrade, the crews of 34 brigades from the central zone of the country, along with members of the police, army, lifeboats, navy and Red Cross attended the service. Over 3000 people in total filled Plaza Sotomayor and then paraded through the city centre.

My camera doesn't take very good night shots so sorry about the quality...
