The Seven Fundamentos
by Ricado Cortez
Rico Cortez, firefighter, young-father-of-three, chiseled-like-Atlas, finds himself in the epicenter of a ripper. The two-story wooden house engulfed in flames, trapping three children in upstairs bedrooms. Though not safe for firefighters to enter, Rico’s team rushes in.
