CORBETT HONORED: Flags are at half mast in the fire departments. Corbett is dead. No, he left no family, but he did leave to be cherished a reputation for faithfulness and duty well done. He was only a horse, but an adjunct to the department. He served seventeen years continuously and died when given his first vacation for the strenuous life he led from colthood. Corbett was 23 years old at the time of his death- a ripe old age for a horse.
