A McDowell County Sheriff's Office deputy saved a family of four from a burning home Thursday morning.
When Deputy Jordon Frisbee arrived at the house on Veterans Drive, it was engulfed in flames. Scott and Betty Geouge and their two daughters were inside asleep.
Frisbee broke a window -- and helped them all get out safely. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.
“Based on what I know of the facts, if not for Deputy Frisbee, the family likely wouldn’t have gotten out alive,” Sheriff Ricky Buchanan said in a news release. “This was a team effort by so many emergency agencies, but I am especially proud of how Jordon responded and reacted in this situation to save lives.”
