Cleveland Firefighters Memorial to be re-dedicated Sunday

(Cleveland) - The Firefighters Memorial next to FirstEnergy Stadium has been completely refurbished.

The memorial depicts two firefighters battling against huge flames, and was originally installed 12 years ago. It took a beating from the weather, resulting in the removal of the sculpture for repairs.

The sculpture has now been re-installed and will be re-dedicated during a memorial service at 12:30pm Sunday, just before the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Cleveland developer Sam Miller donated $15,000 dollars toward the repairs, with Cleveland firefighters funding the rest through payroll deductions.
