Johnston County — Area firefighters came together to honor one of their own Sunday afternoon in Johnston County.
A giant American flag hung from two ladder trucks outside the Cleveland Volunteer Fire Department as firefighters held a memorial to remember 21-year-old Christopher Eargle of Clayton.
He died in a motorcycle crash on May 30. Wendell Police said he lost control of his bike and landed in a ditch.
Eargle was a volunteer fire fighter with the Cleveland Fire Department.
