"On October 10, 2021, the Bonham Fire Department was dispatched to 807 S. 4th Street for a working structure fire at approximately 2033 hours (8:33 p.m.). Dispatch advised responding fire personnel that neighbors had stated that two occupants may still be inside the home. Truck 1 was the first arriving apparatus on scene and advised the two occupants had been extracted from the house by Bonham Police Officers on the scene.
Sgt. Kennedy, Officer Franz and Officer Harris had arrived on scene, reported heavy smoke coming from the house and made their way to the front door. After beating on the door and getting no response, they opened it and found a woman and a young child asleep inside and escorted them to safety.
These three officers demonstrated the complete selflessness of a true hero. It is in my opinion that these three officers went above and beyond the call of duty and their actions did contribute to saving the lives of two of our own Bonham citizens."
