Celebrations are in order tonight for some members of The Macon-Bibb County Fire Department.

Nineteen members of the fire department earned promotions ranging from assistant fire chief to sergeant.

Lieutenant Billy Ray Daniels, who has been a firefighter for 18 years, moved up to Fire Captain.

Daniels says he never imagined his career would take him this far.

"I couldn't imagine being a leader for the city," said Daniels. "I love my career." Daniels' two daughters, Madison and Carson, were on hand to help their dad get pinned.

Ceremonies like this happen on an as needed basis.
