Firefighter injured in 2007 McClung warehouse fire returns to Knoxville Fire Department

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Thirty-two recruits became Knoxville firefighters Wednesday night at a special graduation ceremony. One member of that class has some special experience on the job.

Jeff Kindrick was injured in the 2007 McClung Warehouse fire. He was looking for a few of his fellow firefighters who were in the building when he had to jump from the third floor. Soon after, one of the walls collapsed.
