A FLAG hangs over McLeod Avenue Tuesday morning near the Ironwood Public Safety Department building as a tribute to Jamie Peite, the Ironwood Township fire chief who died last week in Duluth at 43. His funeral was later Tuesday. IPSD fire officer Brandon Snyder, above left on the ladder, and James Maffesanti, above right, of the Hurley Fire Department, tend to the flag. On the ground, Gogebic County Sheriff's Department deputy Brandon Tauer talks with Hurley firefighter John Kallas.
