Families honor heroes in Missouri Hotel fire

Firefighters from Station 2 in Springfield visited Cox North Wednesday afternoon to reunite with the families they saved in last week’s fire at the Missouri Hotel. The firefighters were presented with a plaque from The Kitchen and a banner reading “Thank You God for Everyday Heroes.” 
Dozens of children staying at Cox North signed the banner before meeting the firefighters, who handed out coloring books, stickers and wristbands. Repairs continue at the Missouri Hotel and some residents are expected to begin moving back as early as next week.
