BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. (WESH) — A Good Samaritan saw a Cocoa, Florida home on fire Tuesday and ran into the flames to save a woman and two of her dogs.
“Driving by and I seen some clouds and it was too big to be a bonfire,” Josh Leissa said.
Leissa decided he needed to act.
“I went into the front door and that part was blocked so I couldn’t go in there. So I had to go to the back and she was in the back room.” he said. ” A lot of smoke. Could barely see anything.”
Inside Leissa found a woman lying down, the only protection he could offer her was a yellow rain poncho.
“I grabbed her and her dogs and got her out of there,” Leissa said.
