Hundreds of people came out Saturday to honor two Jessamine County Firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty 20 years ago.

Chief Mike Wheeler and firefighter Cecil Fain died when their fire truck flipped over while responding to a fire.

Community members walked in Nicholasville from the old county fire station on Oak Street to their new fire station on South Main Street.

Firefighters from Garrad, Fayette and other counties also walked in their honor.

Everyone was also given a challenge coin with both men’s names engraved on it and a fireman's prayer on the back.
