ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19) -

An Alexandria man was honored Wednesday evening for saving a man from a burning truck following an accident in April.

Campbell County Police Department and Rumpke Waste and Recycling honored Louis Scharold during the Campbell County Fiscal Court meeting.

"Mr. Scharold's quick actions probably prevented further loss of life," said Mike Puckett, Rumpke Director of Safety.

Campbell County Police presented Scharold with its Wayne Roger's Award. Rumpke also made a donation to the Special Olympics, a charity special to the family, in his name.
