Funeral for Columbus Fire Capt. Robert Floyd scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday

The funeral for Columbus Fire & EMS Capt. Robert Fletcher Floyd is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday.

The service at Striffler-Hamby is open to all, though drivers on Macon Road should be prepared for a mile-long procession.

The procession will include fire trucks from different cities, as well as trucks stationed at intersections along the route with their lights on.

Drivers not part of the procession should find another route to their destinations during this time.

Floyd, 40, of Seale, Ala., died late Sunday after his car went off the road and burst into flames. He was driving near County Road 24 and Avalon Circle in Russell County around 11:30 p.m., authorities said.
