TROY, N.Y. -- Troy firefighters were honored Tuesday morning for their life saving work during an apartment fire back in September.
Flames swept through two buildings at Fenimore Trace Apartments so fast, three residents found themselves trapped inside. Some tried to escape the smoke and flames by climbing out of windows.
Thanks to the quick response from firefighters, they were all rescued.
Several members in the department were also promoted at this morning's ceremony.
