One firefighter was killed and four other firefighters were injured while battling a house fire Monday evening in Lawrenceburg.
Multiple fire departments from across the region began fighting the fire around 4:30 p.m. at a home in the 500 block of Hood Lakes Road.
The home collapsed and a county-wide mayday protocol was established, meaning a firefighter is in danger or injured, just before 8 p.m.
Three firefighters were trapped inside the collapsed home and air was fed into the structure until they were rescued at 8:09 p.m.
The fallen firefighter was identified as 11-year veteran of the department, 38-year-old Jason Dickey.
The two trapped firefighters and two others were taken to Southern Regional Medical Center. Two have been released, one is expected to be released later Tuesday and a Captain remains in critical condition.
