“A Fresno firefighter is in critical condition after falling through a roof into a burning home.Â
The house fire broke out just before 1:30 p.m. Sunday in Central Fresno. Firefighters were battling the blaze on Cortland and Del Mar avenues when the man was injured. The firefighter underwent surgery on Sunday and was in the burn unit.
A horrifying moment as a firefighter crashes through a roof and is engulfed in flames. Harrowing screams from bystanders all caught on camera by Sooji Lee, who watched in disbelief.Â
“I almost had an anxiety attack because we didn’t know what was going to happen. I honestly didn’t think he was going to make it,” said Lee.
