Fire Victims Say Firefighter “Guardian Angel”

Island Dunes Fire
The cause of the massive condo fire is still under investigation.

ORANGE BEACH, AL- Mark and Tammy Evans are meeting Orange Beach firefighter Robert Simpson again under much better circumstances.

The last time they were together was on Tuesday when Simpson pulled the couple and their 130 pound Great Dane, Chase, from their burning condo at Island Dunes.

Simpson, who’s only been on the job for less than two years, was one of the first firefighters on scene.

Simpson grabbed a ladder off his truck, climbed up to the balcony, slung the Great Dane over his shoulders then guided Mark and Tammy down to safety.

Simpson says he’s not a hero, he was just doing his job.

The Evans’ call Simpson their guardian angel.
