Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- 14 firefighters were honored Wednesday for saving the lives of three children in February, who were left alone in a burning apartment.

The firefighters were recognized for their bravery during Wednesday's city council meeting.

The firefighters are credited with finding all three children, who were unconscious from smoke inhalation and pulling them to safety.

All the children were under the age of five, and were apparently left alone without a babysitter.
