This is from a fire Tuesday in South Knox County, Tennessee.
An East Tennessee firefighter is out of the hospital and back home recovering.
On Tuesday, Rural/Metro firefighter Brian Pratts was part of a crew battling a house fire in South Knox County. While working to remove a window, part of the home’s brick facade collapsed on top of him.
“I was laying there, pretty well stunned in that area,” Pratts remembers. “I didn’t lose consciousness but I was definitely dazed. They get me and drug me to a safe area at which time the ambulance crew was waiting to assess me and transport me to UT.”
Pratts underwent surgery Tuesday night on a broken foot. He also broke his thumb and tore several tendons in his foot.
