Texas firefighters rescue mother, 3 children from raging blaze
Firefighters in Texas’ largest city helped rescue a family from a second-floor balcony as a raging fire tore through their apartment building early Monday in dramatic moment captured on video, according to FOX News.
The blaze at the Corner Village Apartments began around 1:30 a.m., and quickly spread to three alarms, fire officials told FOX26 Houston.
A firefighter who was rushing to set up water told The Houston Chronicle he heard screams for help coming from a second-floor balcony, and looked up to see the woman and her three small children calling for help.
“Training took over,” Michael White told the newspaper.
The woman and her three children could then be seen in a video being helped over the balcony’s railing and down to safety as flames rage above them.
