22 Firefighters Rescue Man Trapped In House Fire
Raw Footage: June 23, 2008 firefighters from Station 19-D (Houston 5th Ward)were notified of a working structure fire with victims trapped. When Engine and Ladder 19 arrived they could hear a man screaming for help near a back room. The rear of the structure was nearly impossible to access due to a large amount of "clutter". Firefighters from Ladder 19 proceeded to breach a wall while crews from Engine 19 made entry in the front door. Crews made a decision not to immediately suppress the fire in order to keep the heat and steam off of the victim they were working to rescue. Firefighters from Engine 19 located the victim and removed him from the house. The victim will make a full recovery and received only minor burns and smoke inhalation.
