NEW YORK (AP).- A bronze sculpture depicting a firefighter and a dog trained to help in arson investigations is making a stop in New York City during a 12-city tour.
The life-size national fire dog monument is called "From Ashes to Answers." It was created by 22-year-old firefighter Austin Weishel, of Loveland, Colo.
It was commissioned by an arson investor and owner of Sadie, the canine model. It will be permanently located in Washington, D.C., after the cross-country tour.
Arson dogs are specially trained to sniff out accelerants used to start fires, including lighter fluid and gasoline.
The sculpture was at the New York City Fire Museum on Wednesday. The tour is sponsored by the American Humane Association and State Farm.
