Harrisburg fire Lt. Dennis DeVoe’s badge No. 401 was retired in a ceremony Tuesday.

DeVoe died March 11, a day after a vehicle driven by a woman allegedly high on PCP crashed into DeVoe’s as he drove to a fire station to pick up his gear.

The fire blamed on a recharging hoverboard killed two girls.

DeVoe was a 45-year-old father of four.

The Stewartstown resident’s name is also listed with those of other fallen firefighters on the Memorial Wall at the fire museum.
