(COLDWATER) - A pair of Branch County Sheriffs Deputies have been honored for their actions on March 17th when they rescued a man from his burning home. Deputies Greg Ware and Al Fleming were given the department's Award of Merit.
They were off duty at the time of a home explosion at the corner of Bidwell and Marshall Roads in Girard Township. The Sheriffs Department says with little disregard for their own well being, Ware and Fleming rescued a dazed Edward Yudes who was still inside of the burning structure. The deputies stayed with Yudes until he could be safely removed thus saving his life and the lives of his pets. Yudes survived with second degree burns and cuts. Sheriff John Pollack told Branch County Commissioners that Ware and Fleming were recently notified by the Michigan Sheriff Association that the Deputies actions would be recognized with the presentation of the Distinguished Service Medal.
