911 call on boy in fire: 'He's going to die'


911 call from house fire


The aunt of a boy rescued from a burning Spokane home early today told a 911 dispatcher the boy was trapped in the house and she feared for his life.

"The house is on fire and there's a baby in it," the woman exclaimed in a short 911 call released by the Spokane Fire Department. "...Oh my God. He's going to die. He's going to die!"

But the boy was saved. He's now recovering at Sacred Heart Medical Center.
