Across the nation, some firefighters spent at least part of September 11 remembering the 343 firefighters who died in New York in 2001.
In Colora, Kyle Burns marked the occasion alone - just himself and a Stairmaster.
Burns is a probationary volunteer firefighter with both the Community Fire Company of Rising Sun and Kingsville Fire Company in Baltimore County. He comes from a family of first responders - his parents Rob and Tammy, of Port Deposit, and older brother all work in public safety.
