CHARLESTON, S.C.---Charleston has found a way to pay tribute to its fallen heroes. The city will be putting the names of the nine firefighters who died fighting a furniture store fire on all its fire trucks.

The announcement was made during one firefighter's funeral today.

During the service, dozens of city firefighters waved their white uniform caps in the air as the congregation waved white handkerchiefs and sang the spiritual "I'll Fly Away".

The final firefighter funeral will be held tomorrow in Washington, Indiana.
