    Dispatcher describes 5 fire deaths as ‘heart-wrenching

    LEBANON, Mo. (AP) — A dispatcher says firefighters’ desperate efforts to save five children who died in a southern Missouri mobile house fire were “heart-wrenching.”
    The Kansas City Star reports that Lori Embry says one firefighter’s voice was breaking with emotion Wednesday morning as he described being unable to open a window to the home in Lebanon.
    The Laclede County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher says the firefighter, who was the first on the scene, could see a mother and a baby. The woman was flown to a hospital, but crews couldn’t reach the baby or other children in time.

    That is very sad. We can hope they died quickly and suffered little. I have heard that dying in a fire goes quicker than people think. First responders have my respect for dealing with these kinds of gruesome situations.
    Faith can move mountains, but don't forget to bring your shovel.
