CLEVELAND -- A Cleveland firefighter is getting recognition for his heroism in Iraq.

Firefighter Victor Lewis has been awarded a Bronze Star for dodging machine gun fire to rescue a pair of fellow Marines.

Both Mayor Frank Jackson and city council gave Lewis special proclamations.

Lewis served in the 3rd Battalion 25th Marines. It's the Brook Park unit that suffered heavy casualties in the Iraq.
