Firefighters honored for battling New Year's Eve fire


A New Year's Eve fire destroyed a downtown building in the Town of Tazewell but officials say it could have been a lot worse had it not been for the teamwork of several area fire departments.
Tuesday night, each of those fire departments was honored at the Tazewell County Board of Supervisors meeting. 

Multiple crews from across the county responded to assist the Tazewell Fire Department as they battled the blaze that the destroyed the building that housed Guru's Now and Then Thrift store, Becker's Jewel Box, a law office and several apartments.

Fire departments were each called up to receive plaques from their supervisor recognizing their efforts in fighting the fire and keeping it from spreading.   Supervisors say without their combined effort, more building and businesses would have been destroyed.
