In February, 1992, flames ravaged the Athletic Club in downtown Indianapolis and sent shockwaves through the Indianapolis Fire Department. This tragic blaze claimed the lives of two Indianapolis firefighters and injured several more, one critically. 

The Memorial was dedicated on July 26, 1996. The list of names had grown to seventy-one as the concept was expanded to include all of Marion County.

The Memorial sits in front of the Local 416 Union Hall. This is housed in the oldest standing firehouse in Marion County. The Memorial consists of five descending columns that spiral out from the front of the firehouse to the centerpiece column. On each column are inscribed the names of our fallen heroes.
