A fire truck used during the World Trade Center evacuation on 9/11 will be lowered into exhibition space for the National September 11 Memorial Museum.

The truck is from the New York City fire department's Ladder Company 3, which helped civilians escape from the north tower.

A crane will lower it 70 feet into the site on Wednesday afternoon.

The memorial plaza opens to the public on Sept. 12, a day after the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attack. The museum will open next year.
