The national fire dog monument depicting a firefighter and an arson dog is on a 12-city tour sponsored by the American Humane Association.
A sculpture of a firefighter and a dog trained to help in arson investigations will soon become a permanent monument in the District.
A bronze sculpture depicting a firefighter and a dog trained to help in arson investigations is making a stop in several cities before becoming a permanent fixture in D.C.
The life-size national fire dog monument is called "From Ashes to Answers." It was created by 22-year-old firefighter Austin Weishel, of Loveland, Colo.
The monument was commissioned by an arson investor and owner of Sadie, the canine model. It will be permanently located in the District, after the cross-country tour.
Arson dogs are specially trained to sniff out accelerants used to start fires, including lighter fluid and gasoline.
The sculpture was at the New York City Fire Museum on Wednesday.
