On Nov. 30th, 2015 at approx. 11:40 PM, Uhrichsville Officer's Sgt Brandon Mccray and Ptl. Steve Mcintosh and Dennison Officer Sgt. Matt Grezlik, responded to a reported structure fire at 222 McCook Ave. in Dennison.
Upon arrival, the Officer's observed heavy smoke billowing from the structure. Officer's soon learned that the two occupants of the residence were still inside.
Without concern for their own safety, Officer's entered the residence and located the occupants and removed them to the outside.
All three Officer's suffered smoke inhalation and were subsequently transported by ambulance to Trinity Hospital Twin City for treatment.
Although, the outcome of the rescue was not what the Officer's would have wished for, they still risked their lives in an attempt to save others.
Therefore I, as Mayor of the City of Uhrichsville, hereby recognize them for their Valor...
Mayor Rick Dorland
City of Uhrichsville
