Bridgeport firefighters gathered for an emotional ceremony today to remember two colleagues who were killed in the line of duty four years ago.

Bells rang and bagpipes played for Lt. Steven Velasquez and firefighter Michel Baik, who lost their lives battling a fire on Elmwood Avenue.

Both Velasquez and Baik left behind families with young children, who all attended the ceremonies.
