Third Grader Honored For Alerting Mom To House Fire

Earlier today, firefighters from Fire Station 8, Annandale, stopped by Ravensworth Elementary School to honor third grade student Taeloire with a Life Saving Award.

A younger brother had accidentally started a fire in a bedroom while playing with matches. Taeloire was made aware of this and, taking his little brother in tow, went to another room where his mom and another younger brother were located. He advised his mom that there was a fire in the house and that they needed to get out immediately. He then helped get his mom and younger brothers out of the house safely.

On hand to witness firefighters present Taeloire with a certificate and department gifts, were his fellow third graders, Principal Roxanne Salata and proud parents.

Great job Taeloire!
