Body-cam video from Parker County, Texas Deputy Jeremy Tharp recorded when he pulls up to a house fire early Thursday in Weatherford.
Firefighters say two girls, about 10 and 13, made it out on their own. Four children and their parents were trapped in a back bedroom, the only part of the house that wasn’t burning.
Two neighbors were at the bedroom window when the deputy arrived. They had already rescued a 6-week-old baby boy. The mother was overcome with smoke.
The body cam video shows the flames spreading into the bedroom as firefighters went inside. Seconds later, smoke filled the room and poured out the window.
Firefighters say the father and two of the children, about 4 and 2 years old, went to the Parkland Burn Unit in Dallas. Neighbors cared for the infant until he went to the hospital.
