MFD heroes rescue, revive boy trapped in burning duplex

Statement from Alderman Joe Davis, Sr.

I want to publicly commend the Milwaukee Fire Department heroes who entered a burning duplex last night in the 7700 block of W. Villard Ave. and ended up saving the life of a five-year-old boy. The firefighters searched the building and found the boy unresponsive on the first floor, and then brought him outside where he was revived. Reports are that the boy was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

These firefighters risked their lives and their own safety to save a life – something they are asked and trained to do on a daily basis. On behalf of my constituents and the city, I applaud them for their bravery and for their quick actions, and I wish the family and the boy my sincere well wishes as they recover from this life-altering event.

I will also take this opportunity to remind all property owners to make sure they have working smoke detectors located throughout each and every residence. Smoke detectors save lives!
