MARROWBONE, Ky. — The Marrowbone Volunteer Fire Department is mourning the sudden loss of their assistant fire chief, and his longtime dedication to the fire department and community.

Assistant Fire Chief Brian Belcher died Wednesday when the vehicle he was driving overturned, WXKQ reported.

Fire Chief Clinard “Bubby” Adkins said Belcher was always there for anyone in need during nearly 30 years in the fire department. He told WYMT that Belcher was known for always trying to be serving others. 

“You have two types of volunteers. You have the ones that run in and volunteer for a while and leave; you got the ones that run in, volunteer, put up with the heartaches and all the stress and stay,” Adkins said. “Brian was one of those. He never gave up.”
