NEW YORK, N.Y. After 27 years, Dianne Partridge still remembers her husband's first fire.
Today, Dianne Partridge will view the destruction of the World Trade Center alongside her husband an unusual decision for her. Through the years, she wouldn't turn on the police scanner when her husband was at work because, "I just didn't want to know about it."
She said she expects today's view of Ground Zero, the former site of the World Trade Center, to take an emotional toll on her.
