BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – This afternoon Brevard County Fire Rescue and Rockledge Fire Department responded to a horrific vehicle collision with fire on Interstate-95 near Fiske Boulevard.

Firefighters Dan White and Larissa Conroy were off duty and returning home from a class when they came upon the incident.

They found an SUV which was towing an enclosed trailer jack knifed with the SUV on its driver side.

The pair found a patient who was pinned underneath the vehicle and in need of immediate assistance.

With the help of bystanders, they rolled the vehicle back upright and dragged the victim to safety. They then focused on the driver who was still pinned in the vehicle.

Conroy used the electric seat to move the seat back and then pulled the patient through the back door of the vehicle while White held back the flames with a portable fire extinguisher.

These heroic actions were performed while the vehicle was burning. Although the outcome wasn’t ideal, their selfless actions are what the true spirit of the fire service is all about.
