Authorities said the two Lawrenceburg firefighters injured when another was killed while battling a Monday night structure fire are in good condition.

"City of Lebanon Fire Department extends our honest condolences and prayers to the Lawrenceburg Fire Department and the family on the loss of firefighter Jason Dickey", said Lebanon fire Chief Chris Dowell.

A house fire broke out around 4:30 p.m. yesterday (Monday) on Hood Lakes Road in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. A distress call went out around 8 p.m. when a wall of the home collapsed and trapped the five firefighters underneath it.

The names of the victims have not been released.

Tuscumbia has offered support to station the fire department in Lawrenceburg.

"This firefighter, who answered the call to this hard and risky task, has shown love and commitment of the highest order for his brothers and sisters in the service, and for this we are eternally grateful", said Mt. Juliet fire Chief Jamie Luffman. "I've lost one of my boys".

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

"This is hard on our community, it's hard on our fire department, it's hard on the family", he said.
