Milwaukee firefighters were called to a burning home Monday morning. By the time they got there, employees with Milwaukee-based Roman Electric who were working nearby, had already rescued 2 occupants. They helped a man and a baby get out through a first-floor window. Worker Chris Rassette says they first noticed somebody opening windows on the home that was near their building.
A second man made his way to the roof to escape the flames and eventually had to jump to safety. Fire crews found another person on the second floor and they were taken to Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital’s burn unit for treatment.
The cause of the fire is not known at this time but is being investigated.
