Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women and families of the Vienna Fire Protection District (Missouri -- near Rolla) after six of their firefighters suffered moderate to severe burns following an explosion while fighting a house fire just after 11:00 (Central) this morning. UPDATE (8:00 P.M. Central): FIVE of the six firefighters have been treated and released. The sixth has been admitted to a hospital burn unit.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the men and women and families of the Carter County, Missouri Sheriff's Office (just west of Poplar Bluff) after one of their deputies was shot in the line-of-duty this morning. The deputy was shot multiple times and has been airlifted to a hospital in Saint Louis. A trooper was also shot but was protected by his ballistic vest and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The incident occurred just after 10:15 (Central) this morning.

We are thankful for a positive outcome after two Munfordville, Kentucky firefighters were injured in a crash on Interstate-65 near Bonnieville early this evening. A Munfordville Fire apparatus and two tractor-trailers were overturned in the crash. Both firefighters were transported with non-life-threatening injuries.
