Sgt. Adams Candlelight Vigil

With Sympathy

It is with a very heavy heart that I report the loss of a firefighter brother today.  Sergeant Kyle Adams was involved in a tragic accident this morning shortly after getting off duty from the Fern Creek Fire Dept.  Sgt. Adams was a great father, husband, son, brother, and friend.  Sgt.  Adams served the citizens of our community for literally his entire life, even as a toddler when he would come to the fire house with his father, a retired FC firefighter.  Sgt Adams was a pillar to not only our department, but the Fern Creek community, someone that everyone knew, trusted and liked.  He will deeply missed and we ask the community to keep the family, friends and department in their prayers as we get through this difficult.
