YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — A Yuma memorial to honor those lost in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks incorporates a 2-foot-long piece of steel from one of the World Trade Center's twin towers.
The Yuma Sun (http://bit.ly/15h352q ) reports that the memorial is being unveiled by the Yuma Fire Department during a Wednesday morning ceremony.
Parts of the ceremony are timed to coincide with the fall of the first tower.
Fire Department personnel and Yuma-area construction workers built the memorial. It's based on original concept drawings by local artist Debra Erfert.
The 160-pound section of I-beam was given to the Fire Department by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
