As many of you know, Fresno Firefighter Pete Dern was seriously injured with very serious burns when he fell through a roof while fighting a fire recently.
Doctors say the 25-year Fresno Fire veteran severely burned 65 percent of his body. "He is receiving very powerful intravenous pain and sedation medication but he is following commands and appears to be understanding what we are telling him and will do things when we ask him to do that," said Dr. William Dominic.
“Pete means a lot to the department. He is firefighter's captain. He is a leader among leaders in this department, well-respected, sound mind and judgement," said Chief Kerri Donnis.
