Tim Fisher helped to rescue William D. Nolan from burning, Chad, Kentucky, March 13, 1931. A fire of unknown origin started in the single room on the second floor of a frame building in which Nolan, 73, merchant, lived alone. Fisher, 51, railroad foreman, and Roscoe Lewis ran 1,000 feet to the building and over a walk that reached from a hillside to a door of the second-floor room. They broke in the door and found it filled with smoke and flames. Hearing groans from Nolan, Fisher and Lewis groped their way 18 feet across the floor and found Nolan on the floor partly under his bed. Grasping Nolan by the shoulders, they carried him out of the building. Five minutes later the second floor and the roof collapsed. Nolan died from burns the next morning. Fisher was slightly burned on one arm.
