Governor Mike Parson orders all flags flown at fire houses across the state be flown at half staff in honor of a fallen firefighter.
It was yesterday when Parson made the order honoring Firefighter-Paramedic Charles McCormick. McCormick died while fighting a house fire just south of Kansas City last Sunday.
Flags will fly at half staff tomorrow, the day of McCormick's funeral.
McCormick, a former member of the Missouri National Guard, is survived by his wife and three young children.
