From the Lindale Chamber of Commerce:
We are asking Lindale Businesses to change their signs to so support for firefighter Joe Yeakley and the Lindale firefighters. We also encourage businesses to create signs to line Highway 69 to show support.
Yeakley remains in critical condition at Parkland Medical in Dallas after receiving burns to his face and hands this morning after a partial roof collapse. Yeakley is a 14 year veteran with Lindale Fire Department with nearly 30 years in the fire service.
