LIVONIA, Mich. – Three Livonia Teenagers who walked past a house fire earlier this week sprang into action and helped escort residents to safety, officials said.
Ethan Morche, Chase Adams and Colin Anderson noticed smoke coming from the roof of a house at 3:52 p.m. Monday (August 29) as they passed on Ellen Drive in Livonia, authorities said.
They stopped the car and Chase and Ethan called 911, officials said.
Someone inside the house was screaming, so Chase and Ethan tried to enter through the front door, police said. They couldn’t get in, so they went back and found an unlocked sliding door, authorities said.
Colin stayed outside to tell Livonia firefighters there were people inside, including his two friends, police said.
Chase helped one of the occupants out of the house, officials said. When he called Ethan and got no response, he went back inside and helped escort another person to safety, authorities said.
“We couldn’t be prouder of these young men who stayed calm, did the right thing and were directly responsible for saving the lives of two of their neighbors,” said the fire and lifeguard chief of Livonia, Robert Jennison. “They could have driven by, but instead they decided to act and stopped this incident from becoming a tragedy with loss of life.”
The teens and residents were treated for minor smoke inhalation and released at the scene, officials said.
