At around 5:04 pm, Sunday, May 2, the Nelsonville Division of Fire was alerted for a structure fire on Pleasantview Avenue.
While on scene and active in firefighting operations, firefighter Armes collapsed. Firefighters and EMS administered CPR and advanced life support care immediately. Armes was transported by Athens County EMS to OhioHealth O'Bleness Hospital in Athens where he was pronounced dead.
Nelsonville Fire Chief Harry Barber informed the Department of the Line of Duty Death and asked everyone to “please keep all our firefighters and their families in your thoughts and prayers as we work through this difficult time.”
Scott Frank, Nelsonville City Manager, said “This is a day that we have all dreaded in our minds. We are keenly aware of the dangers of our public safety professionals, but we all have hoped they would continue to be looked over and protected. Now that tragedy has stricken our City, we must not fall apart but stand strong and band together to support the Armes family and those who are closest to them.”

Lezlee, I’m sorry for your and your family’s sudden loss of your husband, Jeff.  It’s impossible to understand why such grief is cast upon us.  We also cannot know the impact and grief that such a sudden loss has has upon all those who knew Jeff.

 

Please do know that I pray for Jeff, you, and your family at this most difficult of all possible times. 


May God Bless all of you.
