A nine year old boy named Luke who did not have his last name released is being praised for being a hero when on Monday afternoon while his mom and three of her children were inside their family home when a fire broke out in the front porch of their home in Marysville California which is around 40 miles north of Sacramento.
Luke was outside the home where he lives with his mom and three other siblings. Luke then saw flames in the front porch as well as the side of the home that were spreading to the attic.
Luke then ran as fast as he could to go inside his home to alert his mother, younger brother and two infants who were inside the home without any knowledge of a fire outside their home.
What Luke did to assist his mother and one of the infants is amazing. Luke called the authorities to report the fire at his mom’s home, then he picked one of the female infants while his mother grabbed one of the other infant and Luke’s five year old brother as they fled away from the direction of the flames.
Marysville Fire Department firefighter Tony Cuppoletti praised Luke for his quick thinking to evacuate his relatives before it was too late.
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the authorities. Even Luke and his relatives lost their home, I am sure a charity like the Red Cross will help locate a temporary home until they land on their feet once again.
