Submitted By Staff Captain Steve Silva, Fremont FD

On March 30, 2012 at 4:14 p.m., the Fremont Fire Department responded Engine 53 to a reported vehicle fire at 1351 Driscoll Road. This was a single Engine company response as there were no structures threatened. On arrival Engine 53 reported a working car fire, with no other property threatened, and then ordered the Firefighter to pull a hose line to extinguish the vehicle fire.

Fremont Firefighter, Dominic Fagundes, looked through the car's smoky windows, kicked open the passenger window, pulled a young boy out of the burning vehicle and placed him out of harm's way. Engine 53 called for an ambulance and extinguished the car fire, while rendering medical aid to the victim.

A Paramedics Plus Ambulance arrived on scene and transported the patient to Washington Hospital. The victim suffered from smoke inhalation.
