Jerry ‘Chainsaw’ Bryant, and his mother, Flo, experienced one of our worse fears on March 4th, 2023, when a fire started in their home on Trumbo Hill near the Carter/Rowan County line.
Chainsaw arrived home around 11:00am and discovered the entire home was filled with smoke. His mother, Flo, was inside the home and disorientated at the time of his return. They both escaped the fire safely.
Olive Hill Fire Department arrived within minutes and began a successful fire attack. Mutual aid was also provided by the Hayes Crossing-Haldeman Fire Department where Chainsaw, has been a dedicated member of the department for the last 22 years. Chainsaw and Flo were both transported to St. Claire HealthCare for smoke inhalation and were released later that day.
Their home is a total loss, and they are currently living in a house owned by Jerry Bowen 980 Tunnel Cut Loop in Morehead, KY 40351.
This GoFundMe was created by the Haldeman Fire Department and Rudy Fest organization(s) to raise funds not only to assist Chain and Flo back on their feet, but also for the future replacement of their home on Trumbo Hill.
