The Lincoln Township Fire Department will pay respects tonight to fallen New Carlisle Assistant Chief Jamie Middlebrook. The northern Indiana firefighter was killed Tuesday night in the line of duty battling a blaze in a commercial building in LaPorte County. The LTFD will turn on the lights of their equipment and observe a moment of silence at 10 p.m. as a symbol of solidarity with the New Carlisle Fire Department and Assistant Chief Middlebrook's family. Fire departments nationwide are being asked to do the same, and the public is welcome to participate. LTFD officials ask that anyone who wants to join them in paying respects arrive at the fire department shortly before 10 p.m., and asks those who cannot come out to turn on the outside lights of their home at the same time.
