Little was driving a freightliner fire engine, which overturned while making a left turn from Mission Ridge Road onto McFarland Avenue in Rossville. (Street view of intersection where wreck occurred)
The truck was heading to a structure fire on Wilson Road.
The wreck occurred around 11 p.m.
The truck overturned and hit a power pole.
Two other firefighters, Matt Mills and Adam Lozano, were taken to Erlanger, and both were released this morning.
Little is the first Walker County firefighter to die in the line of duty.
Chief Camp held a debriefing with his firefighters Thursday morning.
Counseling for firefighters will continue for days and weeks to come, Camp said.
Flags at all Walker County fire stations have been lowered to half-staff.
Georgia State Patrol will conduct an investigation as to the cause of the accident.
The engine truck carries 1,500 gallons of water on board.
He was a good guy, one of the best, Camp said I have known him since he was 15 and an explorer in the Fort Oglethorpe Fire Department. He worked really hard to become a firefighter at (age) eighteen.
Funeral arrangements have not been finalized.
Camp asked that the public keep Littles family in their thoughts and prayers.
Littles older brother, Sean, is a career firefighter in Catoosa.
Numerous thoughts and prayers have already been posted to Jarrett Littles MySpace page expressing sorrow and disbelief.
Be strong, get on the trucks and do the job -- thats what Jarrett would want us to do Camp said, advising Walker firefighters.
