MADISON - People across Wisconsin will be flying their flags at half-staff to honor firefighters who passed away in the efforts to save others' lives.

Governor Walker placed an executive order to lower all flags between sunrise and sunset on Saturday.

He did it "as a mark of respect for the firefighters of the State of Wisconsin who have given their lives in the line of duty."
