A woman in Avondale, Arizona is being hailed as a hero after rescuing the family next door from a house fire.
It was all caught on video from the house’s Ring doorbell camera.
Carolyn Palisch said she was getting ready on the morning of January 1st when she saw smoke coming out of her neighbors’ home. Inside the house, Nicole Salgado, her husband David and their four children.
“All I could think of was the kids,” said Palisch.
So Palisch kept banging on the door until the family of six got out safely.
Every minute mattered.
Police say the roof collapsed minutes later and the family of 6 wouldn’t have made it if it weren’t for Palisch.
From that morning forward, they became much more than just next door neighbors.
“She’s family, she’s going to be apart of our lives forever, you know. She saved our life,” said Salgado.
