Red Bluff Firefighter Welcomes Baby Boy

Posted: Dec 20, 2017 6:31 PM

After weeks of battling the Thomas Fire in Southern California, a Red Bluff firefighter came home Wednesday to meet his new baby boy!

Uriah Harris says his wife gave birth Tuesday night in Red Bluff but he was still in Southern California fighting the flames.
When he got the phone call she was in labor, he says he paced around for a bit trying to find out what to do before he came up with this solution.
"I said we are going to FaceTime so I went to the beach I went to the ocean there and I sat on the rocks and I FaceTimed with my wife as she was giving birth at St. Elizabeth she has a great support system it was nice,"said Harris.  

Harris says he cried tears of joy afterward, as his fellow firefighters congratulated him on the beach.
The proud father says the baby is a healthy 6 pounds 13 ounces boy.
19 and 3 quarter inch long, and an exact replica of his last son.
When we last spoke with the father he was heading to St. Elizabeth’s to meet up with his family.
