PHOTO - Pierce County firefighters praised a young father who drove a burning vehicle out of a parking garage last week at Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup. Central Pierce Fire and Rescue posted on Twitter Thursday that the man’s car caught fire in the garage, and that his quick action saved other vehicles and the garage itself. He was at the hospital because his baby was born on Christmas, the agency said. “Mom, baby and Dad are all doing great! (And we NEVER recommend getting in a car that is on fire! EVER!” Central Pierce said via Twitter.
