Twenty-five years later, ceremony honors six KC firefighters killed in explosions

In the predawn hours of Nov. 29, 1988, at the highway construction site of U.S. 71 at 87th Street, two burning trailers loaded with 25,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil erupted in blasts that shattered windows and woke residents for miles around. Six firefighters died. Dozens of their family members joined local dignitaries and active and retired firefighters Friday to pay tribute at the 30/41 Firefighters Memorial.
