Father And Son Rescue Family From Burning Home

Fred Edmonds and his son Trey are being hailed as heroes after they recently ran into a burning home to save a family.

Earlier this month, the father and son duo sprang into action after they saw smoke and heard screams coming from a local Denver home.

KWGN reports:

A father and son are being credited for saving their neighbors’ lives after a fire broke out at a home Saturday afternoon.

Fred Edmonds and his son were driving home when they saw smoke from a house in the 3600 block of Ivanhoe Street. They also heard screams coming from the house.

“My first instinct was really to just go up inside the house and see why someone was screaming,” Edmonds said.

He did that while his 12-year-old son called 911.

“We go inside the house and we noticed there was smoke everywhere,” Edmonds said. “There’s a young lady screaming at one door for somebody and she said ‘My mother’s in the other room.’ So I open up the door and smoke and fire just pour out of the room, in the ceilings and on the walls.

Edmonds said he carried one of the women out of the house, then went back in to rescue the other woman, who had been looking for her door. All of them, including the dog, got out before flames engulfed the first floor.

Edmonds said he’s glad he was able to be a good role model for his son.

Fred and Trey have since been reunited with the women they saved.
