Stockton Fire Fighters Rescue Two Kids Left Alone In Burning Apartment

STOCKTON (CBS13) –  Stockton fire fighters battling an apartment fire were able to rescue two young children who had been left home alone in the apartment.  Police later arrested their parents on felony child endangerment charges.

While fire fighters were inside the apartment dousing flames, they found a two-year-old and a five-year-old child asleep in a bedroom.

Stockton Police later arrested the parents.

    I’d hate to think something bad happened to the Mom. We’ve seen it before. I’m not weighing in until all the facts come out. Glad to hear the kids were saved.

    1. M.O'Donne says:

      Somehow missed the part where she came back. DUH! She should be charged.

  3. Concerned Person says:

Didn’t we learn anything from the last lady who lost her 3 kids pluss sisters kids in a fire ?????????? Let keep oit reel here,….

    cheers to those fire fighters always up and ready to save lives rich or poor. lots of love and blessings to them

  5. Selmers says:

    She was probably the one who ran to get help.

    1. otm says:

      Oh sure that is exactly what I would do, leave my 3 year old and baby alone so I can get help. Everybody knows how heavy a baby and 3 year old are that you can’t grab them when you run out of a building that is burning.

        i do i had it happen to me in Sept 2009

    I’m just happy that the Stockton firefighters were available and able to get there at all. With all the cut-backs the City of Stockton is facing, the Board of Supervisors/City Government are putting their citizens in harms way. Cutting back on wages and hiring for firefighters and police is a huge mistake. I’m glad the children were rescued and saved from a horrible death. Kudos to all of the Stockton firefighters.

    1. Mike Carpino says:

      ARE YOU A PLANT…………………THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE FIREFIGHTERS WHO ARE IN THE NEWS LATELY. iT’S ABOUT IRRESPONSIBLE ADULTS WHO OUGHT NOT BE PARENTS AND FIREFIGHTERS DOING WHAT THEY ARE PAID TO DO. YOU MUST EITHER BE A RETIRED FIREFIGHTER, CITY EMPLOYEE OR A CURRENT FIREFIGHTER PLEADING YOUR CASE.
      KUDOS THE THE FIREFIGHTERS FOR DISCOVERING THE KIDS WHILE WORKING BUT LETS FOCUS ON THE ‘BAD PARENTS OR ADULTS WHO LEFT THE CHILDREN.
      If I heard correctly in last evenings news; Firefighters may loose one person per truck and the shortfall that reduction was supposed to cure was eighteen million??? They aaaarrrreeeee expensive to employ!!!

      1. Janet says:

        No, I’m not a plant, are you fertilizer? I’m just a concerned citizen Mike, that’s all…I merely brought up the fact that we need to keep firefighters and police employed (avoid layoffs) so that they can effectively report to fires, endangered children/citizens, etc. There are certain ratios that have to be met in order to keep people safe….1 police officer to protect 2,000 citizens does not work…same for firefighters…and as far as the mother being responsible, yes, that is wrong and it should be handled immediately. Unfortunately this type of behavior goes on all the time; children left home alone while the parents are out partying.
        You may think public employees are expensive to employ but they go through rigorous training in order to be employed.
        If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

    Let’s get CPS involved. You don’t leave a baby or a 3 year old a lone unsupervised. The two children could have ied.

    1. Lupita says:

      stop being a prick! Racist! Their not from mexico! They did do wrong. This just tells you never leave your kids by themself! Chit happens and thank good the kids are ok!

    2. jimmy says:

      LOL..They never do anything wrong? how did they get here.. YES.. they broke in, guess what Lupita roach!! THATS ILLEGAL!! See how you roaches think? Thats why Mexico is the way it is! you think they would wait in line to come here legally? DEPORT!!

  8. Dan says:

    So nice to hear some good news about the little ones. Hopefully some good relatives take them in and give them love. If they are going to be put in “the system,” that would damage them. The CPS takes kids away, puts them in a strangers home, gives the kids a lollypop (something medicine to calm them down) and this makes the kids like zombies. CPS is the 2nd worst thing that could happen to these kids.
    Praise God that these little ones were saved from the fire.

    1. mo says:

      unfortunately the FAMILY that has them is part of the problem,,,, these so called parents are pieces of S##T, they lived with me for awhile, i had to kick them out because they would leave the little boy asleep and go across the street to smoke weed . i tried cps but the parents have full rights and decision who gets there kids even if they go to jail….the parents were out partying again….

    2. mo says:

      they r out of the fire but the family they r with is no better

      1. jimmy says:

        They should be out of the Country, As they are probably ILLEGAL!!!!!!!!!! And guess what? You’re paying for it,!!

  9. cmore says:

    Live in Sacramento County. A woman and her 2 kids live near me. She leaves her kids alone all the time. The baby is about 2 years. The other is 6-8 years. Called Sac. Cty Sheriff and was told it is not illegal and if the mom thinks her older child is old enough to be responsible, nothing can be done. Called CPS and they said to call Sheriff. So what the hell do you do, wait for the place to burn down or some other horrible thing to happen before anyone gets involved.

  10. Mike Carpino says:

    tHIS IS IN RESPONSE TO JANET’ COMMENT.
    YES, FIREFIGHTERS GO THROUGH RIGEROUS TRAINING AND” WE PAY FOR THAT TOO” FROM HIRE TO RETIRE THE TAXPAYERS PAY AND PAY AND PAY. i WENT THROUGH RIGEROUS TRAINING AND I AM STILL PAYING ON THE STUDENT LOANS THAT HELPED ME GET A JOB. tHERE IN LYES THE DIFFERENCE!!!. IN ADDITION TO THEIR VERY GENEROUS RETIREMENTS AND HEALTHCARE FOR LIFE, IF STOCKTON WANTS TO LAY OFF 100 POLICE OFFICERS THEN I PROPOSE DEPUTIZING THE FIREFIGHTERS SINCE THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO BE UNSCATHED. i HAVE GREAT RESPECT FOR FIREFIGHTERS, MY BROTHER IN LAW JUST RETIRED AS FIRE CHIEF OF CHICO AND MAKES $12K A MONTH PLUS HEALTHCARE FOR LIFE. TRUE ;HE SERVED 44 YEARS IN FIRE SERVICE BUT WITH THE GENEROUS PAY FOR 44 YEARS WHY DOES HE DESERVE 12K AMONTH + HEALTHCARE FOR LIFE. iT’S TIME FOR A REALITY CHECK .Stockton is’nt a safe place and everyone knows is so why do’ they’ always announce cuts that they know will arouse emotional uprisings?. It worked at a time when it might have been possibe to increase taxes to pay for public service buy everyone is hurting. Check out upperend real estate! Even the higher earners are having to take less for their holdings so Maybe it is time to look alternatives; Sutter Creek has grown in the past 10 years with a sizeable population that overflows to Jackson. They have a very effecient Volunteer Fire Dept. that handles that area well, is not 70 to 80% of the towns budget. If Stockton continues to allow the bully’s in City Hall to keep using scare tactics of imminent layoffs of Police while at the same time being fully aware of the crime base. Then maybe “all” the thugs are not out in the street.

    Mike ur an idiot! We all choose our careers so don’t be upset that u may have chosen poorly! Do research before u comment. There are regulations that specify when ff’s can go into a burning building. There has to be a “ric” rapid intervention crew consisting of two dedicated ff’s ready for deployment prior to entering a burning building. Reducing staffing has a direct impact on how fast ff’s can be ready to go into a burning structure to save your life. Fire grows at a rapid pace and literally every minute counts. Voluntee departmentstake extra Lon to Arrive cause they have to drive their personal vehicles to the station before responding. They usual only provide defensive fire operations. Firefighters also provide EMS care which we all know that time during a heart attack or asthma attack etc… Is critical!! Cut fire houses and staffing will result in unnecessary loss of life in some way or another! It is not expensive if you consider the alternative!! Just seems that way now because all the private sector folks aren’t doing so well . It’s not the public employees fault ! Leave them alone and focus on the housing crash, fuel prices and the political mismanagement of our money!!

      Ditto Kevin, but I’m a pilot and work for BLM…..DID CHOOSE WISELY BUT HAD TO PAY MY OWN WAY,,,,FURTHERMORE we are talking about budgetary shortfalls in STOCKTON AND “you” I’m sure, are a Firefighter AND YOU AND YOUR FELLOW ffER “ARE” PART OF THE THE PROBLEM the crosshairs ARE on WHICH WILL BE SOLVED despite the bullying from you and your union BECAUSE YOU ffERS ABSORB NEARLY 70 TO 80% OF THE BUDGET, and you can’t get blood out of a turnip. i RESPECT WHAT YOU DO BUT WEARING TO MANY HATS WITH A DIFFERNT RATE OF PAY FOR EACH HAT MAY CAUSE YOU PERHAPS YOUR JOB.! CASE IN POINT;;; . MY MOTHER REQUIRED 911 IN 2001;, TWO EMTS SHOW UP WITH THE AMBULANCE BUT….. SO DID 5 FIREFIGHTERS…WHY.?????? THIS WAS’NT A BURNING BUILDING. BUT THOSE CONTRACTS HAVE YOU GUYS INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING AND IT ALL HAS VARIOUS RATES OF PAY FOR EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE ….. COUPLE OF YEARS AGO DID’NT THE STOCKTON FIRE SUBMIT A BILL TO THE CITY FOR OVER $1MILLION IN OVERTIME PAY. gENEROUS UNION CONTRACTS ARE oK WHEN THEY CAN BE PAID FOR BUT THE MISTLE TOE USUALLY DIES WITH THE OAK TREE.
