On Friday at noon, the Charlottesville Fire Department rang its bell 32 times in remembrance of the 32 victims of Monday's Virginia Tech shooting.

Special orange and maroon wreaths were also placed on the front of every vehicle.

Not only is the department remembering those who lost their lives at Tech, but they are also remembering a firefighter from Prince William County who died in the line of duty on Monday morning.

"This is a tragedy of course with the Virginia Tech shooting that goes throughout our whole nation, not only just the community of Blacksburg, or Charlottesville or the Commonwealth, but the entire nation. Also, being involved in emergency services, we feel for those responders who had to deal with with that incident that was created for them," said Battalion Chief Robert Bragg.
