As we reported on Friday, Milton Fire & Rescue in Kentucky had it's Station 2 destroyed by a tornado. Since 2008 we have been sharing some of the dash-cam videos from Milton Chief Jason Long here on STATter911.com. During the tornado warning Chief Long was rolling the video once again as the storm came into Milton. It's in foursix eight parts.
This is a message this evening on Facebook from Milton Fire & Rescue Chief Jason Long:
We lost a Station, an Engine, fish fry trailer, ice trailer, gear, radios, pagers, ETC. We had one member inside and he was not hurt. The only part left standing was the small part he was in. WE WILL REBUILD AND WE WILL NOT STOP OUR EFFORTS AT PROTECTING THIS COUNTY. Great job by all people involved. I could not be prouder of this county for the way it has handled this day. Thank you to everybody, I am very proud. Thank you to all thos who have requested to help us in our time of need. I can't say thanks enough.
Above is a picture from Milton Fire & Rescue's website of what Station 2 used to look like. The firehouse, in Trimble County, Kentuky near the Ohio River, was reported to be leveled this afternoon by what has been described as a tornado.
