Scott firefighter injured after falling through roof

A Scott fireman was injured while helping to remove a tree that had fallen onto a home Sunday afternoon. According to Fire Chief Chad Sonnier, the fireman received thirteen stitches to his right hand and is expected to make a full recovery. Sonnier said while removing the tree, the firefighter’s leg fell through a weak area of the roof, causing his hand to make contact with the chainsaw blade. The firefighter was taken by ambulance, to a local hospital for treatment.  Firefighters completed removing the tree from the roof, placing plastic sheeting on the damaged areas.  The homeowner was able to escape without injury but will temporally relocate as a result of the damage sustained by the tree. The report states that once the home is repaired and inspected, the homeowner will be allowed to return.
