Mayor: Mt. Vernon Now Has Full Firefighter Staff

The city of Mount Vernon in Rockcastle County once again has a fully staffed fire department.

Nearly all of the volunteer firefighters resigned after a feud with the mayor.

Mayor Clarice Kirby says since the mass resignation, several certified firemen in Mt. Vernon and nearby communities have agreed to join the department.

Kirby says many of the firemen who resigned earlier in the week have since changed their minds.
