In what seems to becoming not-so-rare anymore, in this latest firefighter close call, Kentucky State Police arrested two men in Kentucky on Saturday night after shots were fired at Firefighters.
Vance Miller, 44, and David Lefevers, 37, were charged with first-degree wanton endangerment.
Members of the Bell County Fire Volunteer Department responded around 2120 hours Saturday after receiving a report of a vehicle burning near a dwelling.
When companies arrived, a man came out of the house, cursed the firefighters and fired at them before going back inside. Fortunately no Firefighters were struck.
Kentucky State Troopers went to the home and attempted to contact the persons inside the home several times by phone and loudspeaker, but they were unsuccessful.
A state police special response team was activated, and chemical agents were tossed into the home and Miller and Lefevers were arrested when they left the house.
