SAGINAW FIREFIGHTERS CREDITED WITH SAVING A MAN'S LIFE
SAGINAW, Mich. - A Saginaw man is in the burn unit at Hurley Medical Center after being rescued by firefighters from a burning duplex.
According to Saginaw Fire Battalion Chief Tom Raines, early Saturday morning, firefighters responded to an apartment building on Lyon Street.
They got residents out of one unit and told firefighters the second unit was vacant.
Crews searched it anyway, discovering an adult male unconscious.
They took him to Covenant HealthCare in Saginaw. From there, he was airlifted to Hurley Medical Center in Flint.
The man suffered smoke inhalation and burns to eight to 10 percent of his body, Raines said.
Raines credited the crew for rescuing the man.
