Firefighter leaves his own wedding to fight nearby fire


A firefighter in Minnesota left his own wedding to fight a nearby fire, leaving his bride at the station as he answered the call to duty.

Jeremy and Krista Bourasa were having their wedding at the St. Paul Park Fire Station and had just finished exchanging vows when dispatch requested all units to assist at a fire.

Looking at his bride, Jeremy was hesitant to ruin her big day, but Krista understood.

“I just looked over at Jeremy and I could just see it in his eyes. He felt so torn,” Krista said. “And I said, ‘Go ahead and go, babe. They need you.’”

According to Today, Krista knew what was important.

“I’ve got the rest of my life with him,” she said. “They needed him for that moment.”

Wedding photographer December Orpen described the moment as “unconditional, unselfish love, not only for each other but for both of them, for their community and for what’s right.”

For Krista, fire is personal- her niece and nephew were killed two years ago after the home they were sleeping in caught fire.

When Jeremy returned, he got to dance with his bride.

“That just kind of put the icing on the cake, for I know she’s the one for the rest of my life,” he said.
