Several Jones County volunteer fire fighters were honored Monday for their courageous work.
Officials from AMKUS Rescue System gave Star Awards to 19 volunteer fire fighters from Glade, M and M, and Powers Fire Departments. This was the second time the award has been given in the nation.
Back in January, several volunteers removed a driver of an 18-wheeler who was involved in an accident along Highway 15 South from his truck using AMKUS rescue tools. The volunteers say being recognized was a great honor.
