• Tulsa fire officials search for family of firefighters killed in 1917 Mayo Building fire

    Updated:

    TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa firefighters are planning a memorial to honor two of their own who died in the line of duty 100 years ago.

    Ben Hanes and Ross Shepard died when a stairwell collapsed at the Mayo building in 1917.

    The Tulsa Fire Department hasn't lost a firefighter to a fire since then.

    Firefighters will recreate the funeral procession that happened one hundred years ago at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Tulsa.

    They are also looking for family members of Hanes and Shepard. If you are related to them or know who is, contact the Tulsa Fire Department.

    The memorial service will take place Oct. 24 at noon.
