Beverly park renamed for fallen firefighters

CHICAGO (WLS) -- King Lockhart Park was renamed Wednesday after Patrick King and Anthony Lockhart, firefighters who were killed in a fire on that site in 1998.

The park is located near 106th and Western in the Beverly neighborhood.

It features a statue of a firefighter and a child.

Two archways mark where the firefighters died while battling a fire at a tire store.

King's widow calls the park a wonderful place to sit and reflect.
