Photos are going viral of a horrific car fire in the parking lot of Erlanger Hospital and a Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy is now being called a hero. In a Facebook post Monday morning, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office posted that while Deputy William Valenzuela was working an extra security job at Erlanger early Monday morning, he saw an elderly woman pull up at the Emergency Room entrance with her car on fire. Deputy Valenzuela quickly helped the woman to safety, notified the Chattanooga Fire Department, and then attempted to put the fire out using a fire extinguisher until fire personnel could arrive on scene. He also used his patrol car to block traffic to keep others from getting injured or driving near the vehicle. Dean Bowen, a paramedic, also assisted in putting out the fire. The Sheriff’s department did not report what if any injuries the woman suffered and the cause of the blaze is under investigation.

State prison officials say they are keeping a controversial shift schedule that critics have blamed for understaffing and violence.
Correction Department spokeswoman Neysa Taylor says the 28-day schedule won’t change, although facilities may now use 12-hour shifts or 8.5-hours shifts, depending on their needs.
Correction Commissioner Derrick Schofield in October told the Senate Corrections Subcommittee the department would survey workers about schedule preferences after an audit recommended changing to a 14-day schedule with 12-hour shifts.
The Correction Department requested the audit following a public outcry over violence that workers blamed on understaffing tied to the 28-day schedule. Previously correction officers worked regular seven-day, 40-hour weeks.
The 28-day schedule was intended to control costs by reducing overtime, but an auditor said it was leading to low morale, stress and turnover.
