For 48 hours at least two people from the Grand Island Rural Fire Department paced inside and outside the mall.

The fundraiser was not the only one honoring Wood River volunteer firefighters Robert Heminger and Kenny Woitalewicz. The two men died after a roof collapsed on them as they tried to save the life of a woman trapped in the burning home. She also died in the fire.

Cadets from the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center have raised more than $7,000 for the families.

More than 40 cadets participated in the Cop on Top fundraiser. At least two volunteers stood post on the roof of a Grand Island Wal-Mart from Friday evening until 6 p.m. Sunday night.
