Michigan flags at half staff for fallen firefighter


Governor Rick Snyder has ordered all state flags to be flown at half-staff  for a fallen Michigan firefighter.  Michael Lubig died Monday, Nov. 12, following a medical emergency at the end of a 24-hour shift Thursday, Nov. 8.

"Michael was a fearless man who cared deeply about protecting the people of Detroit,” Snyder said. “Sue and I send our deepest condolences to his friends, family and colleagues during this difficult time.”

Lubig was a second-generation firefighter who joined the department in 1999. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, running and spending time with his wife and four children.

A service will be held in his honor today at 11 a.m. at Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, located at 9844 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.
