A first responder in North Dakota was called to her own home where her 2-year-old son had been severely burned in a fire.

It happened in the small community of Enderlin in southeastern North Dakota Tuesday afternoon.

Shelby Jankowski was volunteering as a first responder when she heard the call. Jankowski’s son, Royce, had suffered burns after his mattress caught fire.

Just how the mattress ignited remains under investigation.
