From the KFD-

On 8/13/2013 at 02:24 hrs, Miguel Lopez and Eric Limon were driving southbound on Gum St. when they saw flames coming from a residence on 7th Ave. later indentified as 702 E 7th Ave.  They stopped and called 911 and with the assistance of a neighbor, began applying water into the flames using garden hoses.  KFD responded moments later and quickly put out the remaining fire.  KFD firefighters entered the residence, rescuing the resident who sustained burn injuries.  Steven Murphy was transported to KGH, and at the time of this writing was treated for non-life threatening injuries.  The efforts of Miguel Lopez and Eric Limon were instrumental in saving the life of Steven Murphy.
