— Firefighters saluted one of their own in Harnett County Monday.

A funeral procession for former chief Louis Joseph wound through the county, his flag-draped casket riding on the back of a 1940s-era fire truck.

Lewis spent 45 years with the Erwin Fire Department.

He died last week after a bout with cancer.
