On December 3, 1999

6 Firefighters gave their lives

in Worcester, Massachusetts

The fire, the rescue efforts, the recovery efforts, the community support, the international attention, the media coverage,
the memorial ceremonies, the Presidential visit, the fund raising efforts, the coming together, the families.

No fire has had a greater effect on so many firefighters.

The memories of the Worcester Six...
