LA VERGNE, Tenn. - A group of La Vergne firefighters returned from helping crews and victims in effected by the Sevier Co. wildfire.
Five firefighters from the department made the trip. They were there for three days.
They were greeted at home by family and friends.
They said what is shown in local media reports pale in comparison to the miles of devastation they saw in person.
They said the Sevier County community truly needs help financially. They helped other fire departments put out fires that rekindled and also monitored gas lines.
"The thing is of course Tennessee is a volunteer state the fire department across the state of Tennessee coming together and doing what we do best," said Marcus Harney.
They were heartbroken over the great loss people had suffered.
They planned to use the next couple of days to catch up on sleep, but even though they were tired, they said if they had the choice they would do it all over again.
