YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A piece of history made its way to Colorado on Thursday from the site of the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001.

The five-foot long, 3,500-pound piece of iron will end up in Fort Collins, Colorado. On Thursday morning, it passed over the state line from Pennsylvania into Ohio.

The piece of iron is one of the last pieces of i-beam recovered from “ground zero” that is being donated to a fire department whose members were sent to the scene of the Twin Towers collapse to help search for — and recover — victims of the attack.
