Fallen Firefighter memorial in Pioneer Square. It was made after 5 firefighters were killed in a warehouse fire that was eventually found to be an arson set by the owner of the building in an insurance scam. The names of all Seattle firefighters killed in the line of duty are engraved in the concrete portions.

Nice. It's a shame there ever has to be memorials, though. And ARSON? That guy should be burned at the stake.

He was sentenced to 35 years in prison and charged with four counts of manslaughter, so he won't be out any time soon (the guy was in his 40s and will die in prison)
