Firefighter laid to rest with full honors

FORT PIERCE, FL (WFLX)- A 25-year veteran of the St. Lucie County Fire District was laid to rest Friday.

A full honors funeral ceremony for 53 year old Lt. Mark Morrison took place at Westside Baptist Church.  It was the destination for a long procession of firetrucks, police vehicles and musicians that formed the ceremony.
 
Morrison's flag-draped casket arrived aboard a fire engine draped in black bunting. Twelve firefighters in full-dress uniforms flanked it, standing at attention in back.

Morrison died in the line of duty, although he was not responding to a fire call at the time. Fire District spokeswoman Catherine Chaney said the medical examiner has yet to determine the cause of his death, but that it appeared to be medical in nature.

Morrison is survived by his wife, Susan, an Okeechobee County sheriff's detective, and two adult daughters.
