The name of Westland firefighter Brian Woehlke was added Wednesday to the Michigan Fallen Heroes memorial in Pontiac.

PONTIAC, Mich. - Solemn Sept. 11 ceremonies Wednesday saw two more names added to the Michigan Fallen Heroes Memorial in Pontiac.

Westland firefighter Brian Woehlke died this past May when the roof of a burning business collapsed on him.

West Bloomfield police officer Patrick O'Rourke was shot and killed in the line of duty in August 2012.

Families of the two men gathered with first responders for the ceremonies that saw the names added to the wall at the Fallen Heroes Memorial.

Ceremonies are held every Sept. 11 to remember those Michigan police officers and firefighters lost in the line of duty, along with all those killed in the 2001 terror attacks.
