VIDEO: In a solemn ceremony held at Fire Station Five, Las Vegas Fire & Rescue officials continued their tradition of honoring the lives lost during the tragic events of September 11, 2001. This year marks 22 years since the terrorist attacks. The tribute started at 6:45 a.m., coinciding with the moment when the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed, with the tolling of bells. Another special moment that occurred at the ceremony was the hoisting of a special United States flag that had once flown over the World Trade Center. Near the flag, there is also a piece of steel from the World Trade Center itself. Retired New York City firefighter Frank Pizarro sang the national anthem. "On a day like this, we need to remember our veterans and our first responders and all of those who sacrifice their lives every day and remember that freedom is not free," Pizarro said.
