“Hey, Your House is Burning Down”

On 24 January 2015, Bonnie Ball, age 28, and her sister, both of whom are natives of Lynn, Massachusetts, took a wrong turn in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and saw two burning buildings. The people in the building at 375 Crescent St. had left the building, but the roof of the building next door had caught on fire and the elderly couple inside were unaware of the danger they were in. The two sisters banged on the door of the building at 373 Crescent and got the elderly couple out. Bonnie Ball said, “I’m excited that I could help somebody else out, because if we weren’t here, honestly, I think they would have went up in flames, too.” According to Fire Chief Robert Houghton, “Both buildings became engulfed in flames. All occupants were removed before any type of heavy fire.” Bonnie Ball said, “It was like something sent us here to help somebody.” Erin Kelley, the daughter of the woman in 373 Crescent, said that the two sisters had rescued her mother and her mother’s boyfriend. Ms. Kelley said, “They knocked on the door. They let them know, ‘Hey, your house is burning down,’ and they had just enough time.”
