Montgomery County, TN – On May 2nd, 2022, at 1:31pm, E-911 received a call of a house fire at 646 Briarwood Road, Montgomery County, TN.
At 1:38pm, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Deputies Zach Fortner and Cody Evans arrived on scene and quickly discovered two children trapped inside the burning house. Using a nearby ladder, both deputies entered a bedroom window, located the children, and were able to exit with them.
“I am proud of Zach and Cody for their selfless and heroic actions this afternoon. Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson said. If not for these two deputies being on the scene as fast as they were, we would be reporting a very different and tragic story this evening.
