Coming up on THE News: 9/11 Ten Years Later

Here are stories WTOC is working on: The Rescue 5 Fire Station was crowded early on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. When the report of a plane crashing into the World Trade Center went out, every one of those firefighters with one of New York City's elite units hopped on the truck and raced to lower Manhattan.

None of them returned - all 11 men killed when the Twin Towers collapsed that morning. Tim Guidera was in New York to talk to firefighters about that fateful day.
