Four firefighters are being hailed heroes for saving three young children from a burning Fresno, CA apartment. The fire was intense as firefighters approached the building with gears in hand. As they were getting ready to battle the flames, someone yelled “My 3 kids are inside!” What the firefighters did next is nothing short of heroic.
A newly released dramatic video takes you inside the rescue. It’s pitch black inside the burning inferno and Captain Christian Palmer and his team make their way into the apartment. They pass a small electrical fire while they search for the three young kids. They found the three young children on Sunday in a burning Fresno apartment without their mother.
“The mother had given us a general direction of where the kids were to be located. It’s zero visibility inside the building so we’re kind of using, we’re feeling down the wall trying to recognize objects,” said Palmer.
The three children are recovering from smoke inhalation and under the care of child protective services. The Fresno Police Department investigates where the mother was during the time of the fire, and what caused it.
Watch the dramatic video.
