Local firefighters recognized for saving victims


Four Waco firefighters were recognized Thursday for their bravery. Lance Beatty, David Sauer, Lex Hayes and Michael Ball were recognized for their courageous attempts to save victims in a fire that happened over a year ago on N. 19th Street in Waco.

Chief John Johnston recommended the firemen for the award.

"Everybody operates being recognize for what they do, but I guess that's what not your motivation behind your job, I mean it's enjoyable career by anybody's standards," Ball said.

Sadly, 27-year-old Ashley Dawn Rogers, her 4-year-old daughter and 8-month-old son died in the trailer home fire. Her 2-year-old son was saved from the fire.

The four firefighters will now be considered for a national award.
