Firefighters arrived quickly to reports of a structure fire with a person trapped to discover flames extending from the front portion of a subdivided single family home threatening a three-story apartment building to the south.

noticed a nearby artificial Christmas Tree catch fire.At first attempting to unplug the tree, he
was driven back by intense heat and flames, and subsequently proved unable to find or muster a fire extinguisher within the home. His
61 year-old father departed his
spouse in a rear bedroom in an attempt to assist his
