Nutter Fort Community Comes Together After the Death of a Volunteer Firefighter

Posted: Updated:

After the cell tower collapse on Saturday black ribbons are hanging from doors and signs and the flag is flying at half staff in front of Nutter Fort city hall.

All of this is for Michael Dale Garrett, 28, who was a volunteer fire fighter in Nutter Fort.

Garrett was killed in the line of duty when a second cell tower collapsed on Saturday weakened by the first tower collapsing.

Nutter Fort Mayor Nathan Rohrbough said the community is coming together during this tragedy.

"We've had a lot of response from the community, the city of Nutter Fort itself, surrounding cities, surrounding counties, and even calls from other states. People just want to help out whether it is monetarily, food donations, and other fire departments sending personnel to help with current emergencies," said Rohrbough.

Funeral arrangements have been made for Garrett.

The viewing will be held on Friday, February 7 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Davis Funeral Home in Nutter Fort.

The funeral will be on Saturday at the Nathan Goff Armory in Clarksburg at 11 a.m.

You can expect traffic delays on Saturday in the procession area from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The procession will start at the armory, go up Milford Street, then get onto Route 50 east, exit Route 50 at West Pike Street, turn left onto US 19 north, and arrive at the Greenlawn Cemetery.
