A weekend party in rural Kaufman County would likely have ended in tragedy if not for the heroic actions of an 18-year-old girl.

A fire erupted overnight at a cabin just outside of Scurry, Texas, where seven friends were staying for a weekend party.

Jessica Gallegos was sleeping, but awoke to flames and made sure each of her friends made it safely out of the house.

For her actions, we are recognizing Jessica Gallegos of Ennis as this weeks KRLD Community Hero.
