FireXXX The statue at Cardiff-by-the-Sea in northern San Diego County, often adorned by pranksters, was suitably attired this weekend as a tribute to the fallen from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Nobody knows who did it, but the statue of a young surfer was wearing firefighter gear with an American flag in one hand and a "Never Forget 9/11 United We Stand" sign on the statue's pedestal.

Tourists and locals were taking pictures.
