On December 18 of last year, fire swept through a multi-family home in Hartford. Two teens living in the home, along with a neighbor, were responsible for helping to get 17 people safely out of the house.
Antwana, aged 17, awoke to find her family's first floor apartment in flames. Antwana acted quickly to wake her family. She then got all seven siblings out of the apartment through a window jumping out herself. She then raced to the front of the house and began banging on the door and ringing the doorbell to alert others. "I'd rather see myself die than see them die or get burned," Tulley told a reporter from The Hartford Courant. "They come first."
Upstairs, Christopher Brown, aged 16, was awakened by the sound of smoke alarms sounding in the house. Christopher Brown (age 16) helped his sister escape the blaze and alerted neighbors on the third floor to the fire.
Christopher's neighbor, Lemon Coleman, came to the scene and learned that Christopher's partially paralyzed mother was still trapped on the second floor, hemmed in by heavy smoke. Coleman ran into the house, reached Rosemarie Gooden on the second floor and carried her down the stairs and safely out of the home.
