NELSON COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Two bridges in Nelson County have been dedicated to the memory of a fallen firefighter. The twin bridges at Woods Mill will now be known as the Edward L Embry Memorial Bridges.

Congressman Denver Riggleman, who lives in Nelson County, spoke at the event. He gave the family a copy of the Congressional Record of the speech he gave in Embry's honor on the house floor.

Embry was a long-time volunteer firefighter in Nelson County. He died in January after a battle with cancer at age 67.
