Shooting the Vendome firefighters' memorial in Boston gave me even more respect for firemen. Several of the men that died in this fire were off-duty and came in early after hearing about the blaze on the Red Sox broadcast.
I believe the 33 represents Engine 33, which was the first truck to arrive at the burning hotel.
The Hotel Vendome fire was the worst firefighting tragedy in Boston history. 9 firefighters were killed when part of the building collapsed, June 17, 1972.
