A Bulloch County firefighter was injured Sunday night while responding to a fire during a storm that rumbled through the eastern portion of the county. David Knight, 41, a firefighter with the Stilson-area Bulloch County Station 6, was on the way to a reported grass fire caused by downed power lines on Stilson-Leefield Road around 9 p.m. when strong winds suddenly ripped several trees from the ground near where Knight was driving, Bulloch County Fire Capt. Christopher Ivey said. Trees fell in the road in front of and behind Knight, but one struck his truck, Ivey said.
