    Story with video of fire:
    http://www.king5.com/news/local/Off-...103983653.html

    PUYALLUP, Wash. – A woman in a wheelchair was pulled out of her burning home Tuesday by an off-duty firefighter who happened to be driving by. In this video, the Graham firefighter and the responding fire chief explain what happened in their own words.

    The following is the press release from Central Pierce Fire & Rescue.

    At approximately 1500 hrs, firefighters from Central Pierce Fire & Rescue responded to a residential structure fire located in the 1700 block of 7th Ave SE. Prior to firefighters arrival, a female occupant that is confined to a wheel chair was rescued from the burning building by an off duty firefighter that happened to be driving by the residence after picking up his son from school. The off duty firefighter was able to force entry into the residence by kicking in the front door and locating the occupant that was attempting to escape the structure. Both the rescuer and the occupant were uninjured.

    Upon fire department arrival, crews found heavy fire and smoke involving the entire rear half of the structure. The fire was quickly extinguished by responding crews and there were no reports of injuries.

    Central Pierce Fire Investigators were called to the scene and determined the fire to have started on the rear deck/porch area, where a small refrigerator was plugged into an outside outlet. Property and contents loss is being estimated at $70,000.

    Red Cross volunteers are assisting the residents with food, clothing, and shelter.

      Well, all but one of us anyway.
      Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

                Right place, right time. Good outcome. Can't ask for much more. Well done.
                Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

                    This is irresponsible, delinquent behavior. It is freelancing at it's worst, and gives us all a bad name. There was no safety officer on hand, no charged lines in pace, and he was not wearing the proper PPE. Additionally, he forced a door by kicking it. Does this man refuse to make use of his irons? These cowboy-style heroics have no place in our fire service. I hope this man is fined and suspended for his reckless actions. Disgusting.

                            Uh, LA, it is against the terms and conditions of the site to have two log on names and ID's.
