Father killed saving family from fire met his future wife in 6th grade

Brandon Gamble was only in sixth grade when he found the woman he would marry. The 30-year-old was a dedicated husband to Tyeisha and their five children, according to a family member. 

When fire engulfed the front of the family’s Forest Park home early Thursday, Gamble made sure his family was safely outside. But he never made it out.
