WTC beam's arrival in Bradenton delayed

The scheduled 8 p.m. Sunday arrival of a Southern Manatee Fire and Rescue team and a beam from the World Trade Center has been delayed for at least an hour, according to the team.

Part of the delay was blamed on a flat tire, the team said via cell phone Sunday.

The team still plans on driving straight to Firkin & Fox pub i2505 Manatee Ave. E., Bradenton.

The beam is being used for a local memorial to the victims of the 9/11 attacks.
