- Two schoolboys are being celebrated for saving lives of several tenants
- The boys knocked on every tenant’s door to alert them when fire broke out
- The inferno reportedly consumed about 36 units, but thanks these two courageous youngsters, nobody was hurt
Two quick-thinking boys are being showered with praises of heroism after they saved lives of several tenants from a deadly inferno that broke out in Barrington Apartments complex in Romulus, Michigan.
The courageous school boys, RJ Stockton, 11, and Freddie King, 10, reportedly went around the ill-fated apartment knocking on every tenant’s door to alert them when fire broke out.
“We were just hanging out when we saw smoke then fire on the other side. I immediately thought of helping people,” says RJ, who wants to become a public servant once he finishes school.
Thanks to these teenagers, tenants were able to vacate the premises and escape the fire, which according to rescue officials consumed between 24 and 36 units.
Red Cross arrived at the scene moments after the fire alert to help the tenants whose units were burnt down and had consequently been left homeless.
It is not yet clear what caused the fire, though investigation is already underway.
