April 09, 2012  | 

Kenny Fox, a sergeant for the Decatur County (Tenn.) Sheriff's Office and the fire chief of District 3 in Decaturville, died Saturday morning after saving the lives of two other volunteer firefighters by pushing them out of the way before a roof collapsed in a fire.

Decatur County Sheriff Roy Wyatt said the call for the fire came in around 4:24 a.m. Saturday from the Oak Hill Cafe Bar and Grill on U.S. 412, west of Parsons. He said the firefighters arrived on the scene at 4:45 a.m. Wyatt said the roof collapsed on Fox, 39.

Wyatt said two firefighters were injured in the blaze. He said Jeremy Inman and his brother, Randy Inman, were taken to Decatur County General Hospital.

Sgt Fox's actions represent the best of humanity and ultimate sacrifice. I hope his loss inspires all of us to be better public servants.

We will all one day meet our end. We can only hope that it will be with honor.
