Twenty years after being killed in the line of duty, Jessamine County firefighters were honored at a special ceremony Saturday.
Fire chief Mike Wheeler and firefighter Cecil Fain were killed when their truck overturned on the way back from a fire. Friends and family of the two fallen heroes packed the fire station on Main Street in Nicholasville Saturday.
Even 20 years later, the accident still weighs heavy in the hearts of those involved.
A special ceremony was held earlier this week on the exact day of the anniversary. The victims' surviving family members rang a bell in their honor.
