A Detroit teen saves a man and his pets from a house fire. Last week, Owen Tisler was driving in his hometown of New Baltimore, Michigan, when he spotted smoke coming from a nearby home. The 17-year-old Eagle Scout was concerned, so he called his dad to see what he should do. Owen’s dad told the teen to run to the home, bang on the door, make sure no one’s home, and then call 911.
Owen did just that. Unaware that the home was ablaze, a man came out and yelled at Owen for banging on the door, but then the teen warned the man about the fire. The man tells Owen that he’s the only person home, but that there are seven cats and a pet pig still inside the burning house.
Thankfully, due to Owen’s quick action, the man made it out unharmed and they were able to get the cats and the pig out before the fire completely destroyed the home. And while the family who owns the home is devastated to have lost their home, they’re fortunate that no one was hurt and have Owen to thank for that.
