Orange County fire chief rescues woman from burning home
An Orange County fire chief was in the right place at the right time when he rescued a woman from inside a burning home last week.
Highland Falls Fort Montgomery Chief Ryan Falk was in the neighborhood when the call came in for a fully involved fire on Jevens Road last Thursday.
Falk says he made his way inside while flames shot out of the roof and back of the house. He noticed a woman trapped in the stairwell - frozen in fear.
He pulled her to safety and got her out of the house just in time.
Authorities believe the fire started in the chimney.
The woman is OK, thanks to Falk.
