TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa firefighters paid tribute to the lives lost on 9/11 on Thursday.

Firefighters placed 343 flags at Fire Station 27, near 31st and Garnett, to remember lives of firefighters lost during the terror attacks on Sept. 1, 2001.

TFD officials said Fire Equipment Operator Conrad Collison had the idea to display flags during their 9/11 remembrance. The flags will be displayed for several days.
