Schicke Escort Underway
The official escort for fallen CDF firefighter Eva Schicke is underway this morning. More than 100 fire trucks, fire engines and support vehicles are heading towards Angels Camp today taking the remains of firefighter Schicke to the memorial and funeral services this afternoon at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds.
Some roads in the Sonora area were closed this morning, but should be beginning to open up once again. Motorists in the Murphys area and Angels Camp should be ready for traffic slow downs and road closures as the procession forms at Highway 49 and Murphys Grade Road, then winds its way through downtown Angels Camp around noon today.
We will continue to provide reports on the procession and memorial services throughout the day
