Dozens of firefighters from DeKalb County were honored today by the county officials for their daring rescue of children who were thrown to the hands of the firefighters to safety in a blaze that struck the Avondale Forest Apartments on January 3, 2018. Captain Jovan Carter used a ladder to get to the third floor where the fire was when the father of a child handed him one of his children to Carter to take the child back to safety. Scott Stroup who was one of the firefighters was using his helmet camera rescued one young girl who was tossed by her father to his arms and take her to safety. Eight children and many adults were rescued by the firefighters in the fire at the Avondale Forest Apartments. It is nice to see the Dekalb County Fire Fighters being recognized for their work of helping adults and children escape from being rubbed out in a fire on a cold evening.
