Early yesterday morning, Decatur County fire chief, Kenny Fox, was killed in the line of duty when a roof collapsed on him. According to reports he pushed two other firemen out of the way moments before the tragedy, probably saving their lives. Two other firefighters were transported to Vanderbilt for treatment of third degree burns.
I knew Kenny personally. Words cannot express the grief and sense of loss felt by the whole community. Many prayers have gone up for Kenny and his family. During this Easter weekend this makes us even more thankful for God's gift and promise of eternal life.
