MARSHALL COUNTY, WV (WTRF) — You may recall the story on Marshall County Sheriff Deputy Nate Klempa’s K-9 Spartan.
Spartan was battling stage 4 cancer and has passed away. This is why the Benwood Fire Department paid tribute to Spartan with a flag-raising memorial Saturday.

Those at the Benwood Fire Department say Spartan was more than a man’s best friend, he was a special service dog to the community.
