Firefighters Make Dramatic Escape From Burning Building

A fast-moving fire at an apartment in Northeast Minneapolis forced two firefighters to make a dramatic escape......

Two veteran firefighters, Cory and his partner Dylan Taylor, went upstairs to search and ventilate.

It took just minutes, and soon the room looked and felt, very different.

With fire coming up behind them, the window was the only way out...

Both firefighters went down the ladder, sliding face first. It's what they're trained to do. They usually go feet first, unless there's no time to spare and in this case, there wasn't.

"Just the fire conditions changed so rapidly, that was basically the only thing we could do," said Hermann.

It was all in a day's work for firefighters like Cory and Dylan. And the dramatic escape with their lives was just a memory 12 hours later when the two were sent on the next call.
