CBS46 spoke with one of the firefighters involved in the rescue that saved the lives of several people stranded in a burning building. That captain is a mother of three and leads the team at Station #3. "On this fire we did what we had to do and the thing is everybody there knew what they had to do," said Captain Jackie Peckrul. It's a moment which Captain Peckrul will never forget. "I was thinking oh my gosh don't drop it. Ha, ha," said Peckrul. She responded to a massive fire at the Avondale Forest Apartments in Decatur last week and saved a child's life.
