Three local firefighters have been awarded the Medal of Valor after pulling a fellow firefighter out of a burning warehouse in Springdale.
The huge warehouse fire broke out in Springdale on December 27, 2019.
“It was...it was an experience I’ll never forget,” said Noah Carter, driver, operator and paramedic for the Springdale Fire Department.
For hours the fire looked like it was contained, but as the sun went down, the flames went up, causing the interior of the building to collapse.
“I had that feeling of this might be it, this might be the way we’re gonna go,” Carter said.
A crew of four were inside the warehouse when something collapsed and knocked them to the ground.
“I heard a crash and one of the guys had ran into me and I looked down and was like 'what are you doing' and he said he was pinned,” said Springdale Firefighter Vincent Humphrey.
