DENVER - Firefighters with Colarado's West Metro Fire Rescue went above and beyond for a homeowner who fell and broke his leg while hanging Christmas lights on Friday morning. 

At about 10 am., medical crews and firefighters were called to a home in the Ken Caryl Valley neighborhood when resident Glenn Elvenholl fell from a ladder, breaking his leg and dislocating his ankle, according to a Facebook post from West Metro

While the medical crew helped get Elvenholl to the hospital safety, firefighters stayed behind and helped finish hanging up the Christmas lights.
