Homeless man saves 2 children from fire

A Las Vegas homeless man is being called a hero after rescuing two small children from a fire in an apartment.

The children, a 3-year-old and 10-month-old were trapped inside the unit in the 2600 block of E. Mesquite Avenue near Bonanza Road and Eastern Avenue when the fire started around 11:30 a.m.

A homeless man identified as 36-year-old Anival Angelo jumped a gate and pulled a locked security door open so he could rescue the children. He then escaped the flames out a back window.

Both kids were transported to the University Medical Center to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue is call the man a true hero.
