Eastern New Mexico was lit up in red as a well-known Portales firefighter was remembered. 

Scotty Watson, 51, died last week due to complications after knee surgery. 

Fire trucks and ambulances lined up outside a packed gymnasium in Dora on Wednesday as Watson was remembered by the community. 

The paramedic, firefighter and EMS educator served Portales and the surrounding Eastern New Mexico area.
