Neighbor Walks Into Burning Duplex to Help Rescue Woman in Wheelchair
Nineteen people have had their lives turned upside down by a fire in Milwaukee.
Two duplexes caught on fire near 4th and Concordia early Tuesday morning.
Cbs 58 spoke with a neighbor who said she went in and tried to help everyone get out safely.
"All I kept saying was is everybody out, is everybody out. Are there any kids in there?.Let me handle this, I don't want any kids going back in there. Get the kids across the street," said Megan Ortmayer.
Ortmayer said she helped people inside the house move a woman in a wheelchair out of the burning building.
They all are ok.
A firefighter was treated for an injury at Froedtert Hospital.
He too will be all right.
The Red Cross is now looking for shelter for the 19 displaced residents.
