Service later than expected; procession under way

The memorial for Medford firefighters Gale Gurr and John Wells has just ended with a flyover by local helicopters.

A procession of fire engines will now travel from Mountain Christian Fellowship at 1 East Main St. east on East Eighth Street and north on South Riverside Avenue to Biddle Road and on to the Ramada Inn near the north Medford freeway interchange.

The memorial procession and traffic from the service, which was attended by hundreds of people, will tie up downtown Medford and Biddle Road, as streets are closed to other traffic.

The service started at 2 p.m. and lasted longer than expected.
