“Someone has Got to Do Something. And I am that Someone”

At approximately 3:45 a.m. on 11 August 2015, Paul Reed woke up and smelled smoke. A house across the street was on fire on Alta Avenue in Danville, Kentucky. He said, “Someone has got to do something. And I am that someone.” He called 911 as he went to the burning home. He said, “There were flames just spitting out of the side. Is somebody home? Are they still inside? Do they know this is going on?” Once there, he stepped inside the house and yelled, “Hey, is anyone here? Can anyone hear me?” His yells woke up a woman and her son, and everyone escaped safely before the entire roof was engulfed in flames. The woman carried out of her home an urn containing her husband’s ashes. According to firefighters, Mr. Reed is a hero, but he said, “Oh, I doubt that. I’m just a neighbor.”
