Chief Larry Rogers Chief Larry Rogers

A man who made a difference for decades in his community has passed away. Larry Rogers was Claxton fire chief for 28 years. Yesterday, the department had three structure fire calls. Chief Rogers was returning from the last call, driving the rescue truck, when the truck went off the road.

Rogers collapsed and died at the scene. He was 56 years old.

It's the second big loss for Claxton this year. Long-time mayor Perry Lee DeLoach died in the spring.
