LINN VALLEY, Kansas – A Kansas police chief is being called a hero after dash cam video shows him saving a man from a vehicle fire.
Chief Corey Murrison was the first to respond to a fire near a campsite in Linn Valley. He found a vehicle engulfed in flames and its owner lying just a few feet away. Murrison ran to the man and dragged him away from the fire.
Firefighters say ammunition inside the car was exploding as paramedics worked on the driver. The fire chief says without the police chief’s intervention, the man may not have survived. He was treated for smoke inhalation.
Investigators suspect the driver was attempting to commit suicide and caused the fire.
