The Smithfield Fire Department now has a piece of history at its firehouse.

A 300-pound steel beam from the fallen World Trade Center arrived Friday.

The 24-by-14 inch beam will be part of a public display in the station's lobby this summer.

Spokesman Mike Weibel says the display may coincide with the Utah State Fireman's Association convention in June.

Representatives from the Smithfield Fire Department requested to have the beam.
