Heroic efforts mark early morning house fire
Submitted By Fremont PD
Officers and Firefighters are being recognized this morning for their heroic life saving efforts.
Fremont Police and Fire responded to a fully engulfed house fire on the 38600 block of Farwell Drive at approximately 4:30 a.m. on Monday, September 9, 2013. Three residents were extracted from the home and transported to local hospitals in various states of condition.
The rescue did not come without complications. One police officer strategically positioned his patrol vehicle under a window, allowing firefighters to utilize the roof of the car to make entry into the home. Together, first responders pulled the three residents out to safety.
Two officers were transported and subsequently released from local hospitals where they were treated for smoke inhalation. Two firefighters were also transported to local hospitals where they are being treated for non life threatening burns.
We are so proud of the life saving efforts performed by the brave men and women of the Fremont Police and Fire Department this morning. Our thoughts go out to the family and we wish them well during their recovery.
