Captain Kevin Bryant and crew from Fire Station 6 were called to the home in the Mesa area earlier this month. The elderly woman had fallen and injured her shoulder.
Firefighters noticed that overgrown vegetation had narrowed the walkway to her home, possibly leading to the accident.
While the woman was undergoing surgery for her injury, Bryant and fellow firefighter Tyler Smith went back to the home and cleared the brush. In all, they removed three trash bags full of debris.
“I hope that she’s healing well and rapidly, and you know we’re glad to help anytime she calls,” Bryant told KCOY.
