BACK OF THE YARDS — The name of late firefighter Daniel Capuano has been added to the Chicago Firefighters Monument near Halsted and Exchange streets.
Capuano's name, etched into the black granite memorial to 578 fallen Chicago firefighters, was revealed during a Saturday ceremony as an American flag flew overhead and a light rain fell.
Capuano, 42, of Mount Greenwood, was searching a South Chicago building on Dec. 14 when he plunged two stories down an empty elevator shaft. The 15-year veteran of the fire department left behind a wife, Julie, and three children.
