Investigator honored for saving family

HOUSTON Investigator Kubricht was recognized for his courageous act in carrying out his duties on June 1, 2009 which resulted in the saving of five family members from a burning home.

Investigator Michael Kubricht, while on-duty, discovered a home on fire in the Village of Oak Lakes Subdivision. The home's garage was fully engulfed in flames. Investigator Kubricht alerted the family, who were completely unaware of the fire, and helped them out of the house. Once everyone was safely out of the home and all were accounted for, Investigator Kubricht searched the home and verified there were no additional occupants. He then fought the fire with nothing more than a garden hose.

Sheriff Wright said, "Investigator Michael Kubricht's prompt action and genuine concern for this family during a house fire exhibited bravery above and beyond his duties."

"Investigator Kubricht acted without hesitation or regard for his own personal safety," added Chief Deputy Craig Brady. "Without his attention to duty and quick response, the Asim family may not have made it out of the burning home alive."

Investigator Kubricht, 45, began is law enforcement career in 1987 with the Austin County Sheriff's Office and has served the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office for more than 14 years. He has held several positions within the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, including Jail Deputy, Patrol Deputy, Robbery/Homicide Detective, Burglary/Theft Detective and his current position as a Fugitive Warrants Investigator.
