“The window was small where they were trying to come out, so he had to break the window, and then he had to climb through the window to get in there,” Battalion Chief Don Cole told Channel 2 about the firefighter’s actions during the rescue. The firefighter reportedly gave the woman his SCBA mask to help her breathe.

The three were transported for smoke inhalation.
