Two Firefighters Injured on the Job

caution FireLEXINGTON, Ky. (7/19/13) – Two Lexington firefighters were injured Wednesday while on duty.
 
Firefighter Nastassia Alcius was overcome by heat while caring for a citizen at a house fire. Firefighter Embry Beatty received a cut on his hand while attempting to gain access to a home.
 
“We have extensive safety training, but injuries are an unfortunate part of our work,” Chief Keith Jackson said. “Weather extremes, like this week’s heat, really take their toll -- all citizens should take extra care in this weather. And no matter how careful we are, firefighters occasionally have unpredictable injuries like Firefighter Beatty’s.”
 
Both firefighters were treated and released at area hospitals.
