ROGERSVILLE — Former Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department firefighter Kevin Michael Boyke, 21, 185 Price Hollow Road, Rogersville, was sentenced on June 21 to three years probation for Class C felony filing a false report.

Boyke was sentenced by Judge John Dugger in Hawkins County Criminal Court.

In the early morning hours of July 14, 2012, Boyke called in an anonymous 911 report of a brush fire on Heck Branch Road, which is within the service area of the Lakeview Volunteer Fire Department. Boyke was then among 10 members in four fire trucks to respond to the fire. A tipster later identified Boyke as the 911 caller.
