Off-duty volunteer fire fighters save family from house fire

Good News Notes:

The Pikesville Fire Company say a few of their volunteers rescued a family from a house fire.

PVFC says Kathleen Resnick – a nurse at a local hospital – and Glenn Resnick – owner of a local business – were enjoying a leisurely breakfast at their Pikesville house, when their department pagers alerted them to a house reported on fire a block away on Barberry Court.

Kathleen has reportedly been a PVFC firefighter/EMT since 1991 who currently serves as the company’s President, and Glenn, a PVFC firefighter/EMT since 1984 who has reportedly served multiple terms both as PVFC’s Captain and as President of the Baltimore County Volunteer Firemen’s Association and is currently a Squad Lieutenant.

‘There was smoke and fire coming from the breezeway and extending into the house and I realized it was the house of a family (Howard and Amy Mazer) who had just been visiting with our son Danny (also a PVFC firefighter) at our house 15 minutes earlier,’ Glenn Resnick said.

According to PVFC, the house sustained significant damage, but everyone made it out safely and the house wasn’t destroyed, partially due to the quick response of the Resnicks.”
