Officials say Volunteer Fire Chief Charles “Buck” Clough Jr. of Sudlersville is dead after his car slammed into a tree Wednesday night while driving to put out a small appliance fire.

Spokesman for Queen Anne’s County emergency management office says 41-year-old Clough volunteered for 26 years.

Judy Leonard, co-owner of Parkside Deli says –quote –"Everyone just thought the world of him. He was a great father and really involved in the community… We're just all pretty tore up about it.”

  1. Nice job of keeping this in present tense. YOu probably can cut "Officials say" at the beginning of your lead; it'll still be in present tense because you write that Clough "is dead." I like how you fit a quotation in here, too. And you started with the attribution, as it should be in broadcast.
