Local firefighters help build ramp for disabled veteran

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Nov 7, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A local disabled veteran now has a new way to get out of his house.

Las Vegas and North Las Vegas firefighters spent Thursday building a new wheelchair ramp to the rear of the veteran's home.

His wife was concerned that he would be unable to escape if there was a fire inside without a ramp from the rear.

The firefighters who spoke with Action News said they were happy to be helping someone before an emergency.

The firefighters teamed up with the Home Depot, which donated all the supplies.
