Charleston (SC) Sofa Super Store Fire Interim Memorial Planned to Honor Fallen Firefighters

Via the The (Charleston) Post and Courier:
As the four-year anniversary of the Sofa Super Store disaster approaches, the city is working to turn the site into a more fitting memorial for the nine Charleston firefighters who died there.

Long-term plans for a permanent memorial and Fire Department building where the Sofa Super Store once stood are unfunded and years away, but in the meantime Charleston will create a grass-covered, landscaped site with unique memorial markers for the nine, replacing what is now a parking lot and field where nine simple markers hold small flags.

The $45,000 cost for improving the memorial site will be a mix of city money and donated funds. Site work began this week.
