VIDEO: Firefighters are trained to rescue people from burning buildings, and they do it without hesitation. It's much more personal when it's one of their own.
Dekalb County firefighter Viv Evans was battling a blaze in Stone Mountain when she got injured. Evans says even while flames were swirling around her, she knew without a doubt her fellow firefighters would get her out. "We pulled up and you could see it, flames through the roof," said Evans.
Evans and other firefighters rushed into the burning townhomes in Stone Mountain. "We knew we could make a good push and get the fire put out," said firefighter Chase Rawlins.
Evans was only inside a couple of minutes when she went down.
"When I turned, my leg went snap and I fell backward on top of my pack," said Evans.
Rawlins could hear her screams over the roar of the flames.
"The scream that came from her, I knew she was in a lot of pain and I knew I had to get her out of there," said Rawlins.
