West Frankfort Firefighters Honored for 2019 Rescue

WEST FRANKFORT – Three West Frankfort Firefighters were honored at Tuesday night’s West Frankfort City Council meeting for their work in rescuing a woman from a trailer fire last year at 507 South Monroe.

Captain Jon Alexander, Firefighter Gaston Saillez and Paid-on-call Firefighter Willie Herron were honored with an award issued by the State of Illinois at the meeting instead of in Springfield due to the pandemic.

West Frankfort Police officers and other law enforcement involved in the incident were also mentioned at the meeting.
