Last October, Rene Gonzales was a rookie firefighter only two months into the program when he noticed a car on fire on the side of Highway 180. He was off duty but didn't hesitate to pull over once he noticed that a woman was trapped behind the driver's seat.
Another good Samaritan stopped to help as well, and after Gonzales found a metal pipe and broke the window, they were able to free the woman from the car and carry her to the median.
Thank you for your bravery!
