Valdosta - Three Valdosta firefighters were honored for saving a family of four in an apartment fire last week.

Keith Niehanke, Dwight Primrose and Ryan Seymour were among the first to arrive to an apartment fire on Johnson Street last Wednesday night.

Sabrina Hudson and her three small children were trapped on the second floor.

The men quickly rushed in and pulled them to safety.

Friday afternoon Mayor John Fretti and Chief JD Rice presented the fire fighters on duty that night with Challenge Coins for their service.  "This is the second structure fire I've been on so I don't have many under my belt. But all of our training fell into place and as Chief Rice was saying it was a team effort," Niehanke says.

Hudson and her children were not injured.  Firefighters are still investigating the cause of the fire.
