Baltimore County police and fire personnel throughout the region are participating today in the funeral for Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Department member Gene Kirchner, who died Thursday of injuries he suffered in a fire last week in Reisterstown.
The funeral was held beginning at 1 p.m., at Har Sinai Congregation, on Walnut Avenue in Owings Mills.
County police say Walnut Avenue was closed between Greenspring Avenue and Park Heights Avenue beginning at 11:30 a.m., and will reopen when the procession has left Har Sinai.
County police will be on hand to assist people who live on this portion of Walnut.
After the funeral, a procession to Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens will go from Har Sinai via Walnut Avenue to Greenspring Avenue; Greenspring to Broadway; then Broadway across Falls Road, where it turns into Padonia Road. From there, the procession will go to Dulaney Valley, at 200 E Padonia Road.
Motorists should expect delays in that area during the procession.
