Memorial to fallen firefighters dedication

An emotional Monday night, for firefighters in Lexington with the dedication of a memorial to fallen firefighters.

The campaign to build the monument at Phoenix Park in downtown Lexington started two years ago.

Today's date was chosen because two of the firefighters, Lt. Brenda Cowan and Chuck Williams, were both killed on the job during February.

Five other Lexington firefighters have also died in the line of duty, and their names are listed on the monument. a "final call" went out over the dispatch radio.

The monument was paid for by selling commemorative bricks around the base of the monument.
