The Lenoir News-Times posted a story this week, reprinted on Firehouse.com. Members of the Sawmills Fire Department learned of their brother's death a little more than 12 hours after celebrating the groundbreaking of an addition to their fire station. The department's first responders were dispatched to a reported unconscious subject at 3:10 a.m. Monday. They discovered the patient was Firefighter Chad Settlemyre. He was transported by Caldwell County EMS to Frye Regional Medical Center in Hickory. There he was pronounced dead. The cause has not been determined and an autopsy is planned. Settlemyre had been at the station that weekend, helping with preparations for Sunday's ceremony. Here's his obituary from the Hickory Daily News. He's survived by a wife and a two-year old son.
