Firefighter Shot When Ammo Discharged During House Fire

In Latimer County Oklahoma the one of the worst possible scenarios happened when members of the Buffalo Valley Fire Department were battling a house fire. The house was full of ammunition which heated up and discharged as result of the fire. The ammunition struck one firefighter in the face and head according to officials

Emergency personnel rushed the firefighter to the hospital and at this point his condition is unknown.

“Our chief was so upset [that] he started having chest pains,” officials with Latimer County Emergency Management wrote on Facebook. “He, too, was life flighted to Tulsa. He will have new meds and a few days at the hospital.”

The community and emergency management has asked that everyone keep the firefighter, the chief and the family who lost their home in your thoughts and prayers.
