Two volunteer firefighters were injured Thursday when an engine responding to a fire went over an embankment.
A Woodbine Volunteer Fire Department engine had been dispatched to assist the Patterson Creek Volunteer Fire Department with a reported structure fire, Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell said.
The fire engine was traveling down Louden Road, less than a mile from Ky. 92 East, when it left the road and went over an embankment about 12:20 p.m., Harrell said.
The two injured firefighters were taken to Baptist Health Corbin, Harrell said. Both are expected to be OK.
