At the site where each man fell, a small monument was erected bearing his name and years of service.
This tragedy was the greatest single loss of firefighter lives in our country since 9/11.
I knew precious little of the incident when I went to this park. I wish I had known more. I found this incident timeline online today. I just ask that you read it and remember these men. Please note - this entire incident, from a call reporting a structure fire to the horrific loss of life, took only minutes.
