WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) — A memorial was dedicated on Friday in Wilmington to honor three firefighters lost in the line of duty five years ago. CBS3 was at Canby Park on Friday where a ceremony was held.

Three stone benches on Lakeview Road honor Captain Christopher Leach and Lieutenants Jerry Fickes and Ardy Hope.

They died while fighting a rowhouse fire on Sept. 24, 2016.

Next Thursday, the department will hold a memorial blood drive.
