Roof collapsed on Lawrenceburg firefighters

A Lawrenceburg firefighter was killed and two others were injured Monday night as they battled a house fire, The Daily Herald has learned.

The fire broke out Monday at a home in the 500 block of Hood Lakes Road.

One firefighter was killed and the others injured when the roof of the two-story house they were at collapsed while they were fighting a fire inside the structure.

The injured firefighters were transported to Southern Regional Hospital. As of Tuesday, three of them had been treated and released.

The Lawrenceburg Fire Department has scheduled a press conference for 10:00 a.m. Tuesday. "I want to ask for everybody's prayers". "We've lost a man that saved several lives in his 11-year career".

Dickey, an 11-year veteran of the department, and his wife were expecting a baby in the next few weeks. The Nashville Fire Department is still with our man.


Jay Moore said it was the department's second line-of-duty death.

"He was like one of my own".

Many people in this tight-knit community are heartbroken, including the fire chief, who referred to Dickey as one of his own boys.

Dozens of agencies from across Middle Tennessee have responded to Lawrenceburg over the past 24 hours to help fight the fire or to show their support. CISM offers confidential peer counseling following traumatic events such as the loss of Firefighter Jason Dickey. No matter where we serve, firefighters are a family bonded by the sacrifices we make to protect our community.

The Tennessee Fire and Codes Enforcement Academy has identified the fallen firefighter as Jason Dickey. "We pray for peace, comfort and healing for everyone he touched".

The family will visit with friends from 2:00 p.m.to 8:00 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15 at Mars Baptist Church. A Celebration of Life service will be held at the church on Friday at 11 a.m.
