A Local Hometown Hero Honored

Posted: Updated:

Early Friday afternoon, Homes for Heroes surprised a fire fighter that had his home destroyed in the storm.

Victoria Fire Department inspector Frank Naranjo was nominated by two agents of Shaw realty as a hero.

Several of Naranjos' family members and friends showed up to fire station 5, where he was surprised with a check from homes for heroes.

Naranjo says "this money will go a long way for him and his family, who have had a rough couple of months."

"I'm sure you probably know now that we were devastated. Our house from the storm, this will help out on that part. Then my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, so it will help out with our trips back and forth to MD Anderson," explains Naranjo.

Naranjo received five hundred dollars and gift cards from local businesses.
