Firefighters rescue 100-year-old Torah from Boca Raton fire
Firefighters saved a 100-year-old Torah from a house fire on Arcadia Court in Boca Raton, Fla. on Tuesday.
The firefighters extinguished the blaze and went back into the home to get the Torah at the owners’ request.
In a video posted by the local CBS News affiliate, a woman, presumably a resident of the home, tearfully thanked them.
