Memorial for fallen firefighters dedicated Sunday



ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Families and colleagues of firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty have gathered at the state Capitol to dedicate a new memorial in honor of their loved ones.

The Fallen Firefighters Memorial was dedicated Sunday in honor of the more than 200 Minnesota firefighters who have been killed on the job. The event included a procession of family members and firefighters, ringing of bells and a reading of names.

The memorial includes a pavilion surrounded by 100 columns, inscribed with names of firefighters who lost their lives. Four of those firefighters were from the Rochester fire department.
