QUEENSGATE, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati Fire Fighters Union Local 48 joined ArtWorks Wednesday for the dedication of a new mural painted in downtown Cincinnati.

ArtWorks, a local non-profit that employs and trains youth and talent to create art for community impact, collaborated with Local 48 for the project. The mural honors the nation's oldest professional fire department and illustrates the evolution of Cincinnati firefighters from 1853 to present day.

The completion of the mural coincided with the Cincinnati Fire Department's 160th anniversary.

The mural can be seen at the union's office, located on corner of West 8th Street and Freeman Avenue.
