Frederick police officers rescue family from fire

FREDERICK — Two police officers in southwestern Oklahoma are credited with rescuing a family of five — including three children — from a house fire.

The children include a 12-year-old wheelchair-bound boy, a 2-year-old boy and a 3-month-old infant.

Frederick Police Chief Rick Guill says Sgt. Tim Duncan and Officer Monico Segovia were able to get the family out of the burning home about 3 a.m. Wednesday. He says Duncan was driving home from duty when he saw smoke coming from the house.

Duncan beat on the door — then kicked the door in as Segovia arrived to help get the five out of the home. All seven were treated for smoke inhalation at a local hospital and released.

Guill says it appears the fire started accidentally behind a chimney in the home.
