Helmet Cam Highlights Rescue
Cameras worn by California firefighters show dramatic rescue of three young children from burning home.

(KSEE) Helmet-cam video from the Fresno Fire Department shows the dramatic rescue of three young children from a burning apartment building Sunday.

The children suffered smoke inhalation and remain in critical condition.

“We immediately ran it, made access and wanted to get those kids out,” said Fresno firefighter James Perkins.

Perkins was one of a few who ran in to save the children, ages 1, 3 and 4.

The fire was fairly small, but the toxic, black smoke enveloped the apartment. Perkins rescued one of the two children who was unconscious in a back bedroom.

Through the smoke, firefighters found another child near the front of the apartment.
