The Hosette/Cain Memorial at the Sawmill Museum in Clinton has a brand new look.

Octographics LLC in Clinton was "honored to create a wall wrap to compliment this beautiful piece," which honors fallen Clinton Firefighter  Lt. Eric Hosette, and Firefighter Adam Cain. Lt. Hosette and Firefighter Cain were battling a fire at ADM in Clinton on January 5th of last year, when an explosion occurred severally injuring Cain and taking the life of Lt. Hosette.

Hosette was 33 years old at the time and was recently was named chief of the Charlotte Fire Department weeks for the incident that took his life.

The original memorial was put up in August at the museum.

The latest addition to the memorial comes after the 1 year anniversary of the tragic incident that look Lt. Hosette's life and almost took Firefighter Cain's. The Sawmill Museum teamed up with Octographics LLC to make a great addition to their memorial.

As a Clinton native, I couldn't be more proud of the support my hometown of Clinton gave to the Hosette and Cain families. If you are an active or retired firefighter, police officer, military member or EMT, thank you for service and your incredible bravery. I encourage everyone to take a trip to Clinton and see the Hosette/Cain Memorial at The Sawmill Museum.
