Lt. Jeff Little remembered in memorial service

Posted: Updated:

Family, friends and colleagues gathered in Waycross Wednesday to honor fallen firefighter Lt. Jeff Little.

Little was remembered in a memorial service Wednesday for his bravery and dedication to service.

Little served with the Waycross Fire Dept. for 12 years. He was killed fighting a fire early Sunday morning at a vacant home; a fire that was later ruled an arson.

Little's brother explains that he is in a better place.

"We're through here with the service," said James Little. "We are going to take brother home. Mom and dad are waiting on him, and we're going to let him rest."

Little is originally from Alabama, and he will be buried there on Friday.

More than 30 fire departments in the surrounding areas provided equipment for the service.
