6 Rescued from TX House Fire

Six people, trapped in a fire at a house equipped with burglar bars, were rescued on Thursday evening in Houston, according to a report from KRIV Fox 7 Houston.

The report indicated that a police officer driving by the residence observed that the home was on fire. The officer contacted the Houston Fire Department and learned that children were inside the home. In attempts to force his way into the home, the officer had to remove ‘burglar bars’ off one of the windows to rescue some of the children from the burning home. Firefighters then arrived to remove one woman and five children from the burning house. A female teenager suffered second degree burns.
