Volunteer fire department to have benefit breakfast

Thursday, June 10, 2010

The Reelsville Volunteer Fire Department will conduct a benefit breakfast Saturday for Nathan Kendall.

The event will take place from 7-11 a.m., at the fire station.

Nathan, 23, is the son of RVFD firefighter David Kendall and was severely burned in an explosion at his home in Reelsville March 31.

Nathan was using a cutting torch to attempt to remove a gas tank from a vehicle when the explosion occurred.

The fireball caused Nathan to receive second- and third-degree burns to his arms and forehead.

He was taken to Wishard Hospital, Indianapolis, where he remained for a week and received skin grafts on his arm and forehead.

Nathan does not have medical insurance. All proceeds from Saturday's event will be used toward his medical expenses.

For more information or to donate money, contact RVFD Fire Chief John McPherson at 1-765-721-4000.
