Funeral Procession For Fallen Firefighter Glenn Allen

Thousand of firefighters from all over California lined the streets of downtown L.A. to pay respects to fallen L.A.F.D. firefighter Glenn Allen. The procession began at L.A. City hall and ended at the Cathedral of Our Lady Queen of Angels.
Allen's remains were carried on Fire Truck 97 from station 97 where he was assigned. He died earlier this week, when a ceiling collapsed during a fire he was working in the Hollywood Hills.
The fire is currently under investigation as possible arson.
Allen was a 31 year veteran of L.A.F.D. and one year away from retirement.
