LASCASSAS, Tenn. — A volunteer firefighter had to be hospitalized Monday morning after he fell from a stationary fire truck that earlier was involved in fighting a house fire on McKee Road.

The Lascassas Volunteer Fire Department firefighter, who was not identified, fell from a running board and struck his head once the truck he worked on went back to the station around 5 a.m., according to Rutherford County Fire and Rescue Chief Larry Farley.

LVFD, Walter Hill Volunteer Fire Department, Kittrell Volunteer Fire Department and the RCFR department all responded to the fire, which began around 1:30 a.m. after lightning struck the roof of a home at 9944 McKee Road, according to Farley.
