Army Ranger rescues neighbors in Lakewood fire

LAKEWOOD, Pierce County (AP) — A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier just back from Afghanistan helped rescue neighbors in an apartment fire in Lakewood.

Ranger Marcus Taylor told KOMO he heard kids screaming and car horns about 4 a.m. Monday and looked out his window to see flames at a nearby apartment building.

He rushed over and was told someone was still on the top floor of the two-story building. Taylor says he heard rustling and kicked in a sliding glass door. He told residents to come to the sound of his voice.

Taylor was treated for cuts to his right leg from the breaking glass. A woman from the building was treated for smoke inhalation, but everyone got out OK.

Four units were destroyed or heavily damaged. Nineteen people were displaced by the fire.
