North Carolina HVAC Tech Saves Family from Burning Home

Jim Washer, from the One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning location in Charlotte, North Carolina, saw flames coming from a home while on his way to a service appointment on June 6 and knew he had to help. Jim quickly called 911 and then entered the home, finding the mother and daughter who were unaware of the fire. He then helped to get the family's pets--a dog, cat, and lizard--out of the home. 

“They were calling me a hero. I’m not a hero,” Jim told South Charlotte Weekly. “I was just in the right place at the right time.”

Jim was featured in South Charlotte Weekly for his selfless act.
