Injured Westclox Firefighter Released From Hospital

Posted by wlpo on January 3, 2012

The firefighter injured during the Westclox fire is back home and resting.

La Salle firefighter Steve Smith was released from Illinois Valley Community Hospital this morning after injuring his leg trying to attach a fire hose. He had surgery soon after the fire and is expecting a full recovery. Recovery could last 8 to 12 weeks with physical therapy after that.

Besides being a La Salle firefighter and EMT, Smith is also a guard at the Sheridan Correctional Center. The Marine spent time in Iraq.
