Sac Metro Fire
A Sacramento Metro firefighter was burned while battling a blaze in Wilton Friday evening.
Firefighters say everyone was out of the house when they arrived, and managed to quickly knock down the flames. But a nearby fire hydrant was defective, forcing them to scramble to find a working one.
Fire experts say in order to increase your chances of survival in a fire, you must remain calm, stay extremely low, and crawl as fast as you can to the nearest door or window. Standing up and running out could mean instant death.
