The community came out Friday to sign a handmade card as a tribute to the nine fallen Charleston, S.C., firefighters. Missy Blount, wife of Fleming Volunteer Fire Department Chief Jeff Blount, created the card and decorated the table with candles, pictures of each of the firefighters who lost their lives in a fire at a furniture warehouse Monday, and flowers as a tribute to their lost brethren. The card along with some donations that were received will be sent to the firefighters station in South Carolina.
