Firefighters Responding to Montrose Apartment Fire in March Awarded for Bravery and Service

By | July 22, 2014

If it weren’t for Houston firefighters Brad Hawthorne and Dewayne Wyble, construction worker Curtis Reissig might not have survived a massive apartment fire in Montrose this spring. You might remember the last-second rescue that happened just before a piece of the fifth floor collapsed near the firetruck’s ladder as they helped Reissig off an unfinished balcony.

Wyble, who was the ladder operator and Hawthorne, the firefighter out on the ladder, were recognized during the Independent Insurance Agents of Houston annual Firefighter of the Year luncheon last week.
