LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)-- Three names will be added to the Fallen Firefighter Monument Saturday morning. 

Firefighters Joseph Vissing, Matthew Logsdon and Assistant Chief James Branham all died from job related cancer.      

Last year, Kentucky started to recognize certain cancers as job related and that has led to their names being added to the monument. 

The unveiling ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. at the Fallen Firefighter Monument located in Phoenix Park.
