Memorial services for fallen firefighter Joyce Craig will begin Friday night at 6 p.m., the Fire Department said, with a viewing at Batchelor Brothers Funeral Services at 7112 N. Broad Street.
Craig was killed Tuesday battling a blaze in a West Oak Lane basement. She is the first female firefighter in the city to die in the line of duty.
Services will continue Saturday with a second viewing from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., followed by a funeral service, then burial at Ivy Hill Cemetery at 1202 Easton Road.
The firefighters' union has set up a donation fund for Craig's two children, 16 year and 16 months. Donations may be sent to the "Local 22-Joyce Craig-Lewis Memorial Fund" and mailed to the union at 901 Arch St., Philadelphia 19107.
