Oregon Teen Saves Neighbor From FireSalem-News.com
"If Tyler hadn't noticed the fire and alerted us to get out of the house, who knows how far and how quickly it might have spread" - neighbor Janet Alley
(MILWAUKIE, Ore.) - Bruce and Janet Alley didn't know what was going on when their doorbell rang early Thursday morning. Then, over the barking of their four dogs, they heard someone urgently pounding on the front door.
They opened the front door to find their neighbor, Milwaukie High student Tyler Baird, telling them there was a fire in their garage. The Alley family rushed out of the house and called the fire department.
Thanks to Baird's quick actions on September 20th, the fire was contained in the garage, with only smoke damage to the house.
"If Tyler hadn't noticed the fire and alerted us to get out of the house, who knows how far and how quickly it might have spread," said Janet Alley, deputy director of transportation for North Clackamas Schools.
"We are thankful to him for being so persistent to get our attention."
