Fire trucks help Marine come home to family

Marine teams up with fire department to surprise young children

CRAVEN COUNTY - Six fire trucks blasted their sirens through Tiger Woods Place near New Bern Friday. But there wasn't a fire.

It was Sgt. Chris Fisher, a Marine, coming home to surprise his children, Gavin, 4, and Gracelyn, 2. And he got a little help from Township 6 Volunteer Fire Department.

He, along with his wife, Jeri Jo, wanted the department's help because little Gavin and Gracelyn love fire trucks.

"I was really wanting to surprise the kids because I know that they missed him so much," said Jeri Jo. "With him being in crash fire rescue, and him working with fire trucks, the kids love fire trucks. I thought it was the perfect opportunity."

Fisher had been away for about four months. Fortunately for his family, he won't be deployed again any time soon.
