COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A landmark to honor fallen firefighters from Canada and the United States is being dedicated Saturday in Colorado Springs.

The International Association of Firefighters is remembering 310 firefighters who lost their lives from over the past two years.

The reconstructed Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial includes 121 granite slabs that display more than 7,300 names dating back to 1918, including hundreds who died of illnesses such as cancer from exposure to toxins on the job.
