Funeral procession to cause delays

By Washington Post Editors

D.C. Fire /EMS officials are warning that the funeral procession for a veteran firefighter may cause traffic delays around the area this afternoon.

Marc E. Dancy, 37, a D.C. firefighter for five years, was found dead in the 3000 block of Seventh Street NE on Jan. 23. Dancy was off duty when he died, according to D.C. fire officials, and the cause of death is unknown.

Dancy was assigned to Engine 10 in Trinidad, one of the busiest in the District.

Dancy's funeral and viewing is taking place Tuesday at East Washington Heights Baptist Church in the 2200 block of Branch Avenue SE. Internment will be at the Fort Lincoln Cemetery on Bladensburg Road. EMS authorities warned that traffic delays are possible after 1 p.m. along the route, which will include Pennsylvania Avenue SE, DC 295, Florida Avenue and Bladensburg.

D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department will participate in the funeral, giving Dancy an "active-duty" service.

Dancy grew up in the District and lived in Clinton with his wife and children age 8, 10 and 16. Dancy was also a former employee of The Washington Post.
