Monument planned for fallen Oak Cliff firefighters

Neighbors are raising funds to create a memorial for firefighters Vince Davis and Todd Krodle of Station 26, who died in the line of duty. Krodle died this past summer after falling through the roof of a burning building at Ridgecrest Terrace Apartments.

Vince Davis was killed in February 2002 after a wall fell on him as he was fighting a fire at an apartment complex on Jefferson near Plymouth.

Neighbors, including Nola Rae Smith, have established a memorial fund to pay for a memorial that would honor Krodle and Davis. They think a memorial would cost about $3,300. Anyone can donate to the fund. Make checks out to the CFA  (Christian Firefighters Association) Memorial Fund with account No. 1775790 in the memo line. The address is City Credit Union, 7474 Ferguson Road, Dallas, TX 75228.
