FHP Trooper Helps Teen Escape Escambia County House Fire

November 11, 2019

A Florida Highway Patrol trooper helped save the life of a teen from a house fire in Escambia County on Sunday.

Trooper Angel Luna was flagged down by a homeowner that advised her house on Blue Angel Parkway on fire.

Luna tried to extinguish the fire with his fire extinguisher to no avail. The resident, Dawanda Thomas, alerted Luna that her 19-year old son was still inside the home.

Luna used his empty fire extinguisher to break the window and guide Dajuan Jenkins outside to safety.

Thomas and Jenkins received only minor injuries. The mobile home was destroyed by fire.

    Thanks to the men and women of Law Enforcement that put it on the line for us every day.
    Not nearly the respect shown for them that should be anymore.
