Three fallen Nevada firefighters were remembered in the state capital Saturday.
The firefighters' names were added to a memorial in Mills Park.
Clark County firefighter Richard Washington Jr. suffered an on-duty heart attack in August of last year -- He was 49.
Another Clark County firefighter, 50-year-old Robert Thomas Corse, also died of a heart attack.
And 44-year-old Las Vegas firefighter Mark Thomas Keeton died of cancer in May. Authorities say because firefighters are exposed to numerous chemicals during fires, Keeton's death is considered a life lost in the line of duty.
All three men had been fighting fires in Nevada for 15 years or even longer.
