One last salute

Firefighters, residents and students from the Lyndon School stood along Centre Street at the Engine 30/Ladder 25 station this morning to pay their respects to Paul Cahill, one of the two firefighters who died at the Tai Ho fire last week. As the funeral procession, with Cahill's casket atop Engine 30, approached the station, on-duty firefighters stood at attention and gave their comrade a final salute.

The procession continued to Holy Name Church, where several thousand firefighters from around the country gathered for a funeral Mass. Warren Payne, who also died in the fire, will be buried tomorrow, starting with a service at the United Church of Prayer for All People, 206 Seaver St., Dorchester, at 11 a.m.
