Firefighter Reflects on Rescue of Boys from IN House Fire

“To have two young children alive after that exposure to intense heat is nothing short of a miracle,” Hobart Fire Chief Brian Taylor told a reporter from ( Taylor helped pull one of the boys, a 3-year-old who was found unconscious, from the home.

The other boy, 2-years-old, was rescued by Lake Station Fire Department Lt. Robert Saylor, according to fire officals. The fire evidently started in the kitchen. The boys’ mother was reportedly overcome by smoke while trying to get to her children.
