Family Trapped in Burning Town Home
A father and son are in critical condition after fire trapped them inside their town home in Aloha early this morning.
Neighbors on SW Jaden Drive could hear screams from the family just before 5:00. They tried to get to the mother with a ladder, but it was too short and the conditions were too extreme. She was the first rescued by firefighters and is doing much better than her husband and son.
Firefighters went inside to search for them. They found the 11-year-old in a hallway and the man on the third floor.
The blaze is believed to have started in the garage. Crews worked hard to keep it from spreading to a neighboring town home.
