CHARLESTON, S.C. - Wednesday marks seven years since nine firefighters died in a Charleston furniture store fire.
Experts said old equipment and outdated training contributed to the deaths inside the Sofa Super Store.
It was the greatest loss of firefighters in a single incident since 9/11.
Charleston firefighters will honor the group with a ceremony Wednesday night and have been standing guard at the memorial site since midnight.
Each firefighter’s name will be called and a bell will ring in their honor.
