Idyllwild Fire and the Idyllwild Volunteer Fire Company set up their annual 9/11 tribute on Highway 243 Sunday afternoon. Idyllwild Fire Chief Patrick Reitz wrote, “As 9/11 falls on a Sunday we are encouraging everyone to spend this day with their families. IFPD will again show our respect to those whom made the ultimate sacrifice by flying Old Glory high and proud from our Ladder on T621. Please take a moment to say I love you to your loved ones & remember the families of all of those that died in and since as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.” Photo by Jenny Kirchner
