Two MO Firefighters Rescue Woman

Two Raytown (MO) firefighters rushed into a housefire, using their firehoseto clear a path, and rescued an unconscious woman from a house fire, reports The Kansas City Star.

The firefighters went back into the house two more times looking for the woman’s two children, an adult and a pre-teen, who as it turned out were not home overnight.

Neighbors identified the woman as Lisa Smallwood, 42. She suffered third-degree burns on 30 percent of her body and remained in critical condition Saturday night.

The alarm awakened Andrews and Darren Summers, who donned their bunker gear and hopped in their fire engine. As they neared the neighborhood, they could already smell the smoke. When they arrived, they didn’t see any residents outside, which caused immediate concern.
