We regret to advise you that Captain Mike Burgin of the
Sugar Creek Volunteer Fire Department was killed in the Line of Duty on Friday.
Captain Burgin was a member of the Tuscarawas County dive
Team and performed dive rescue operations for the Sugar Creek VFD as well.
Captain Burgin was in training in an effort to improve his ability to function
as a diver for the county team, and his department. We'll post more details as
they become available. Our condolences to all affected. RIP.
