First responders from Virginia Beach jet crash honored
Virginia Beach, VA (WTVR) – Six months after a fiery crash in Virginia Beach, some of the people who arrived first on scene are being honored for their heroic actions.
An awards ceremony was help in Virginia Beach Wednesday night to honor the firefighters who responded that day.
Investigators say their quick response kept the fire from spreading and kept anyone from getting hurt.
The honorees said they’re humbled by the award, but were only doing their jobs.
Dozens of people were displaced after April’s crash, which was later determined to be caused by a blown tire which blew into the engine, causing it to stall.
