KY3 has a story on hero Jay Gemmeke, who gave his life trying to save others during the Thanksgiving morning fire in Wheaton:
One woman, who survived the fire, told KY3 she was able to wake her kids up and get out of the burning apartment thanks to Jay warning everyone about the flames. Others say Jay initially made it out of the building safely, but he turned right around and tried to save others.
"Anybody that would go back into a burning building for another- I am sorry, they are a hero. Whether they make it out or not," stated Harley Mennier, a friend of Gemmecke.
