Firefighters from the Whitley City FD (McCreary County, KY-south of Lexington
near I-75) were burned last night-1 very critically. The Firefighters
were driving along a roadway last night when they discovered a house fire.
It was described as a small fire that appeared to be in the living room. They
knew the families that lived there including a 6 y/o
girl. Initial reports are that the 2 Firefighters immediately
went in to search and rescue the occupants – when things went
ugly very quickly. There was a flashover or some kind of explosion, a door
was slammed shut and they couldn’t get out. 1 FF
sustained extremely critical burns, the other minor burns and both
are at the University of Cincinnati Burn Unit now. The Firefighters are
Brother-in-Laws, married to twin sisters.
keep you up to date. Keep’m in your thoughts and prayers.
Fire Chief Deal Crumbles:
passed on to you the other day that the story about the Omaha Fire Chief who
agreed to retire, and, as a part of that, had made a deal with the Mayor that
no FF’s would lose their jobs due to budget issues-at least for a year.
Well-scratch that-the deal has fallen apart and now the mayor is conducting an
investigation on the Chief-who she has placed on leave. Hmm.
