Off-Duty Fire Rescue Captain Saves Neighbor’s Home from Total Destruction

SPRING HILL – Having a fireman as a neighbor came is handy for a Spring Hill family today, after an off-duty Fire Captain spotted smoke coming from his neighbor’s garage.

According to officials, just before 1:00 p.m. today, Fire Rescue responded to 220 Glenlock Lane to reports of a structure fire. While Fire Rescue was en route, the Captain whose identity has not been revealed, searched the home for occupants, rescued three dogs, and began spraying the fire with a garden hose.

Due to his swift actions, the fire was contained to the garage and did not damage the home.

Upon further investigation, it was determined that the smoke alarms did not activate inside the home even though the house did fill with smoke.

The State Fire Marshal is currently investigating the cause of the fire.

  • Tiffiny what does it matter where they buy their food? Its their money. I love how a positive story about firefighters has turned into “I saw a firetruck at publix, SOMETHING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT!!!” Probably people who don’t even have jobs or pay taxes….and can’t spell tiffany.

  • Firefighters are a special breed of human being. They should always be commended for the constant life threatening job they do. Lil louie, did you always want to be a “fire man” but couldn’t climb that ladder? Stop being a jealous jerk and leave the big boys to do their very important job…

  • Retired Ohio firefighter. This guy will be the one who calls 911 five times a week to help get him off the floor when he is stuck between the toilet and the tub. Jerks like this always need the service sooner or later and I am glad we have a class 2 fire department and also ems service in spring hill! People like this always filled my heart with warmth when I worked knowing I would give my life to save his.

  • Some people are such jerks. What would you have done lil Louie, run the other way. Great job responding in 3 minutes and an off duty Captain never off duty. This community is blessed to have such dedicated FF’s. Especially when they get comments like lil Louie. The key word is Man in your comment lil, something you are not.

  • Lil louie. Firefighters go to publix to get groceries after running a call sometimes. They are in service while in publix and will drop groceries and run to the truck for any emergency. Its the same as being at the station.

    Wednesday, 30 September 2015, 8:07 pm
  • Lil Louie please move out of this county. Your not wanted
