Local fire heroes honored at annual luncheon

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department held a special luncheon Thursday honoring local heroes.

The 2014 Service Awards Luncheon recognizes firefighters, medics and civilians who put their lives on the line to help protect the community.

Among those honored were the brave men who rushed to save a woman from a burning plane that crashed in a Kearny Mesa parking lot back in July.

On Thursday, Devon Logan got a chance to meet and thank her rescuers.

"I absolutely know that I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for their bravery," Logan said. "I'm so, so thrilled that they received the recognition citywide that of course I felt that they should get."

Logan says the rescuers did all they could to save her mother, but she died as a result of the crash.
