Six-years-ago this evening nine Charleston, South Carolina firefighters died when the Sofa Super Store on Savannah Highway burned. In remembering and honoring those firefighters ABC News 4 in Charleston (WCIV-TV) is running the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s documentary “Charleston 9: The Ultimate Sacrifice”. The TV station is live streaming the telecast (above) starting at 7:30 PM EDT. It is one of a number of ways people in Charleston today are remembering Captain Louis Mulkey, Captain Mike Benke, Captain William “Billy” Hutchinson, Engineer Bradford “Brad” Baity, Firefighter Melvin Champaign, Engineer Mark Kelsey, Engineer Michael French, Firefighter James “Earl” Drayton and Firefighter Brandon Thompson.
As one of the producers I would like to publicly thank the management and staff at ABC News 4. In particular, News Director Cathy Hobbs and General Manager Suzanne Teagle who immediately recognized when it was released last month that the video was something they wanted to share with the citizens of Charleston.
