An army of fire trucks descended on Badgers Funeral Home to mourn the loss of Lansing VFD member Janet Stuart Monday afternoon. Each Ashe County volunteer fire department sent a representative to show their support to the Lansing VFD. The trucks then filed out from the funeral home and headed toward Liberty Baptist Church, where Stuart’s funeral was being held. First responders at the funeral home said fire fighters and rescue squad members form a very tight-knit community.
