Arizona Woman Frantically Pounding on Door to Save Family From Fire Just Before Roof Collapses

News

An Arizona woman was determined to save her neighbors from a house fire—and the rescue was caught on the family’s doorbell camera.

When Carolyn Palisch saw smoke floating past her window early in the morning on New Year’s Day, she knew she needed to check on the Salgados family of six living next door.

The video shows her frantically pounding on the front door of their home in Avondale.

Nicole Salgado says she’s glad Carolyn was so persistent in trying to wake them.

At 7:30am Carolyn finally roused them and ushered the family to safety just in time.

According to Nicole Salgado, minutes after they escaped, the roof collapsed.
