Sioux Falls Fire Chief: "You would call her a hero".

Posted: Updated:

 Today we learned more about yesterday's fatal fire at an apartment building in the 200 block of South Williams Avenue that claimed two lives.

 They were 2-year-old Eli Galicia and the woman who tried to save his life....29-year-old Sulmi Guerra Sandoval.

 She was able to save three children... and Sioux Falls Fire Chief Jim Sideras calls her a hero. "Yeah you would call her a hero. Anyone that puts their life in jeopardy like that is...is a hero. When you are taking that kind of sacrifice...and you do so without any thought of your own peril....I think you're a hero."

 The cause of that fire is still under investigation.
