Tommy Procter and Kathy Delaney did not know each other before the morning of Friday, April 27th. But when Delaney, busy trying to persuade her teenage daughter to go to school, spotted a three story building on fire that morning, she acted quickly and without much thinking in attempting a rescue. Procter, who was driving home from a coffee visit, did likewise when he spotted Delaney running into the burning building. The two heroes ran to all three floors and alerted the residents, including two elderly women on the first floor, that the building was on fire. On the top floor, a young family with a three year old was grateful for the warning and rushed out of the building.
Deputy Fire Chief Tom Walsh said that Delaney and Procter’s actions definitely saved lives, and that his investigators believe that the fire accident started with a smoldering cigarette on the second-floor porch.
