GREENSBORO, N.C.– Firefighters rescued a small child from a burning building on Monday morning.
According to Chris Wilson with Guilford County Emergency Services, the young boy was transported to Moses Cone Hospital shortly after 10 A.M.
He is currently listed in “serious” condition, according to Wilson.
Battalion Chief Pat Henley said the fire broke out in an apartment in the 1400 block of Glenside Drive.
Henley confirmed that the young boy was trapped inside and firefighters had to rescue him after arriving on scene.
Neighbors like Terrence Lynch watched anxiously.
“I can only imagine, if it was my little boy, I would hate for him to be in that situation where he has to face life and death,” said Lynch. “I’m sitting here in my own window as I’m watching before I came outside, I’m just like, ugh, I really hope he’s okay.”
Henley said the fire was extinguished within a matter of minutes. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
