A tough decision by a fire chief results in being invited to the State of the Union on Tuesday.
Taylorville Fire Chief Mike Cruz canceled a city wide Christmas parade the evening a tornado struck that Christian County town. Cruz made the decision hours before the annual celebration was set to begin. Republican Congressman Rodney Davis who invited Cruz says he wants to honor someone who made a heroic decision no matter the outcome.
The Taylorville tornado injured more than 20 people but did not kill anyone.
