Todd Unger, WFAA-TV:

Combs was driving down Everman Parkway around 11:30 p.m. when he saw an orange glow a few streets away. The home was fully engulfed in flames.

Combs was the first emergency responder on scene, and it wasn’t long before neighbors and a mother started yelling about a girl trapped inside the home.

“The fire was so hot,” he said. “It was full of smoke and heat. So hot, such a thick smoke, it was unreal.”
