VIDEO: West Allis firefighters rescue person from a burning car

Video released by the West Allis Fire Department shows a dramatic rescue during a car fire last month. 

On July 18, crews were called out to a car fire near 56th and Lincoln and found one person unresponsive in the driver’s seat. 

The fire made the door handles inoperable, so crews had to find their own way into the car to save the person. 

Dashcam and body cameras captured video of the rescue. West Allis police released some of that video on Facebook on Thursday. 

Amazingly, the person rescued from the van was not injured by the fire.
