Alognquin - Lake in the Hills firefighter Justin Dusek of Crystal Lake cuts a corner piece of limestone veneer on Wednesday at the site. The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Firefighters Association plans to honor fallen firefighters with a memorial at Algonquin’s Riverfront Park. It will pay homage to those who died during the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and two firefighters who died in the line of duty for the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District. Money for the $30,000 memorial came from fundraisers held by the firefighters association.
