IBEW Apprentices Rescue Seniors from Pittsburgh Nursing Home Blaze

June 28, 2013

Pittsburgh Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 5 members are being credited with saving dozens of local senior citizens from a fire that tore through a nursing home June 25. Community College of Allegheny County instructor Tammy Miller was teaching a class of 24 IBEW members when some of the students spotted trouble at the senior living facility next door. Miller says:

We were on break and some of students were standing outside when they noticed smoke coming from the neighboring building. I then said, ‘Oh my God, that’s a nursing home,’ and they made off like a swarm of bees for the building.
