It is with a heavy heart that the Blue Ridge Mountain Vol. Fire Company shares this sudden loss with the Miller family.  

Just because we never seen her face, didn't mean she wasn't saving our lives.

Behind every firefighter, there is a guardian looking out for them and Christine was one of our guardians! 

Rest peacefully, we have it from here!
