The Kingman Fire Department held a flag ceremony Sunday morning at Firefighters Park in honor of their 11 fallen brothers killed in a BLEVE explosion in Kingman on July 5, 1973. Helen Black Tapp unveiled a painting she made soon after the explosion which expresses her grief at the event and gratitude towards Kingman's firefighters, who she said had saved her life in 1952. The painting was donated to the KFD.
