Fallen firefighter Devoe's badge retired, name listed at Pa. National Fire Museum
HARRISBURG — A firefighter from York County killed in a crash while rushing to a fatal hoverboard fire has had his badge number retired and name listed at the Pennsylvania National Fire Museum.
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.
