Cape Coral, Fla. -- Lieutenant Michael Camelo retired Wednesday after 36 years with the Cape Coral Fire department.
That makes him the longest serving fire fighter in city history.
He says it's the firefighter brotherhood and helping others that he'll miss most. Camelo says "bottom line, I loved coming to work at the fire department every day. It had nothing to do with the money and it had nothing to do with the time that you had, it had everything to do with helping people out...and that in itself is rewarding."
