Jesup firefighter recognized for going above and beyond

Posted: Updated:
JESUP, GA (WTOC) -

Tonight at the city council meeting, a Jesup firefighter got an extra thank you from his city after saving a life.

Last week we told you how Joshua Huffman rushed into a neighbor's burning house while he was off duty, and rescued a woman. While he was modest tonight, city leaders said he deserves credit.

"People have been coming up to me and saying 'thank you,' stuff like that," said Josh Huffman, Jesup Fire Department.

"He reacted...and he acted! He is the kind of person to do that, and he is part of what makes this a good community," said Herb Shaw, Mayor.

The woman continues to recover in the Burn Center in Augusta.
