Man saves son in W.Va. blaze
FALLING WATERS, W.Va. - A 35-year-old man was hospitalized for smoke inhalation and burns after carrying his son from a burning house early Sunday morning.
Mike Kenny was in stable condition at City Hospital in Martinsburg Sunday night, according to a nursing supervisor. Bedington Volunteer Fire Co. Chief Robbie Robinson said Kenny suffered first- and second-degree burns to his arms, face and back, but the more serious concern was smoke inhalation.
Robinson said Kenny's 4-year-old son woke his father up and told him the house was on fire. Kenny wrapped the boy in a blanket and crawled through the smoke and flames to safety.
