CARTERS VALLEY — Hawkins County firefighters are mourning the loss of 20 year veteran David Schnepp, 43, whose in-the-line of duty death occurred after fighting a brush fire Sunday evening.

Carters Valley Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mike Yates said details of Schnepp’s death would be released sometime Monday evening by the Tennessee Federation of Fire Chaplains.

The CVVFD was dispatched to a brush fire at 5:02 p.m. Sunday, and Yates said Schnepp died sometime after that call ended.
