343 firefighters lost their lives on September 11, 2001.   Seven firefighters from Wilmington, North Carolina have died in the line of duty.   WHQR’s Rachel Lewis Hilburn reports that construction begins soon on one new memorial designed to honor to multiple acts of heroism – on 9-11 --- and right here in the Port City. 

The coordination of several agencies led to what Wilmington Fire Chief Buddy Martinette considers a successful containment of the fire that broke out yesterday in the Pine Valley neighborhood.
