SPOKANE, Wash. - Firefighters in west Spokane went out on a call they'll never forget on Wednesday. 

When firefighters got to a home on Sinto and Sherman, they found an expecting mother inside the home already in labor. 

With no time to make it to the hospital, firefighters adapting and delivered the boy right there at the home. Officials on scene say those kinds of calls are pretty rare, and usually only happen at least once or twice a year. 

Both the baby boy, named Silas by his parents, and the mother are doing good!

Silas Russell is 19.5 inches and 6lbs. 15 ounces.
