Woman Helps Save Father In Leonia
(New Jersey) -
An elderly man was rescued by his daughter and son-in-law that lived next door as a fire erupted in his Leonia home on January 6th. An apparent electrical fire started in the attic area of a home at 215 Leonia Ave shortly before 3:00 AM. Luckily for the 86 year old man inside, his daughter and her husband lived next door, and she was awake at the time and saw the smoke. Both ran and took out the man as the fire department was called.
Leonia firefighters with assistance at the scene from Englewood, Palisades Park, Ridgefield, Fort Lee, and Teaneck had the fire under control in less than one hour.
