It’s been a tough couple of days for Fresno firefighters. Captain Pete Dern fell through the roof of a burning garage Sunday into a horrific column of flames in a story that made national news. He has a long recovery ahead of him, but it’s pretty awesome to see the community’s outpouring of support for him. He deserves it.

Last night, Fresno firefighters onceĀ again showed that saving lives and keeping our homes safe is simply what they do. They rescued an 85-year-old woman in a wheelchair at a Tower District house fire, contending with two other burning structures and a broken power line to get to her. And they rescued the pugs. Twitter user @proper_exposure (Silva, Mario according to his Twitter page) tweeted this photo. If that doesn’t give you the warm fuzzies for our firefighters, I don’t know what will. Thank you for keeping us and our furry family members safe.

Does anyone know who these two firefighters are?
