At the fire station in Iquique (Chile), it is a day of mourning because a senior member of the government's Relief Corps has passed away after so many years of service.

This senior member was the sweet and gentle dog Negro, that was a presence that had become an integral part of the family of firefighters who daily put their individual skills and lives on the line in service to their community. 

To honor the work of a dog that had been able to give so much to his fellow "colleagues", they wanted to say goodbye to him with a special ceremony.

"It is with great sorrow that we inform you that our beloved Negro left this earth today ..."

It was in this way that the Riquelme of Iquique firefighters announced the passing away of one of its members. 

Negro was a dog who with his presence alleviated the stress and strain of so many firefighters struggling with dangerous missions and who cheered everyone up during the moments of waiting.
