A Virginia firefighter died in the line of duty this weekend in Mecklenburg County.
Twenty-five-year-old Josh Smith, a volunteer firefighter for the La Crosse Volunteer Fire Department, died in a single-car accident in route to a fire Saturday afternoon.
He leaves behind his mother and twin brother. Flags in the town of La Crosse are being flown at half staff in his memory.
"The fire department has lost a family member. He will be missed dearly by the community he served," said La Crosse Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mike Clark.
