Work is under way this week to create a more fitting memorial for nine Charleston firefighters who died fighting a furniture store fire almost four years ago.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports work at the site where the Sofa Super Store once stood is expected to be completed by June 18, the fourth anniversary of the blaze.
The $45,000 project will create a grassy landscaped site with memorial markers for each of the firefighters. Until now, there were only nine simple markers with small flags.
Officials plan to build a fire station on the site with a permanent memorial.
