Woman’s Skin Melted Off When She Saved Girl From Burning Home – Then Her Father Married Her

If you ask any parent you know, they will tell you that they would give their life for their kids, but Angel Fiorini almost did. She almost died rescuing her three children from a horrendous house fire.

She woke up around midnight unable to breathe and realized that her Washington home was engulfed in thick smoke.

“It was really hot already, even though it was on the opposite side of the house,” the 33-year-old mother told PEOPLE. “I just knew I had to get out.”
She grabbed her two youngest children, Vinnie, 4, and Rosalie, 2, under each arm and ran them outside to safety. She then ran back in for her 8-year-old daughter Gianna. Angel’s boyfriend, who is the children’s father, was not home at the time.

“In that moment, the smoke being so thick and so black, and the fire moving as fast as it was, I had no idea how I would get back in there,” she said. “There was no way that I was going to stand outside my house watching it burn with her inside. There was nobody to call for help, and I knew that I was the only one who knew where she was in the house, and waiting wasn’t an option.”

Angel credits her faith in God with giving her the strength to crawl back into the home and feeling her way to her daughter’s bedroom.

She dragged her daughter from the room to the front door. Angel’s skin melted off on the doorknob and she and her daughter both had skin hanging from their arms and hands. Most of their bodies had third-degree burns.
