The City of Lebanon recently recognized two people for bravery for their efforts to save an 82-year-old woman from a house fire.
Kenneth Taylor and Lebanon Police Officer J.D. Holliday were presented with certificates to acknowledge their work to save Ann Simpson from a house fire Nov. 13 at her home at 353 Burton Lane. The presentations were made at the Dec. 10 Lebanon City Council meeting.
Taylor and Holliday went into the house to remove Simpson from the house, which was on fire and filled with smoke.
“I just want to thank you for what you did,” Lebanon Fire Chief Ricky Mattingly told Taylor. “There’s no doubt in my mind what you and Officer Holliday saved this lady’s life.”
Mattingly presented the certificate to Taylor, and Police Chief Wally Brady presented the certificate to Holliday.
