Firefighter Injured as He Fought The Fire at Local High School
Firefighters are an inspiration. They work crazy hours plus some, they risk their lives daily to make sure others live, they deal with extreme temperatures, and they don’t make the best pay. They do it because they have golden hearts. They are true heroes. They give up their family time, their lives just to make sure they can try to make this world a little safer for us.
One firefighter was courageously injured as he was battling a three-alarm fire at the Bolsa Grande High School. The school is located in the Garden Grove area and this on Sunday afternoon, according to the police.

The fire was contained to the first two initial classrooms. However, there were six other rooms that had gotten some smoke and water damage.
According to Spargur, there was one firefighter who was injured. He had hurt his hands somehow and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. Luckily no other injuries were reported.
