NORTHPORT CITY COUNCIL HONORS LOCAL HERO AFTER SAVING FAMILY FROM BURNING BUILDING
A Northport family is lucky to be alive after a Good Samaritan came to their rescue during an apartment fire.
Justin Little, 18, saved a family of nine, including five children, from an apartment fire in Knoll Circle back in March.
Investigators said a child was playing with a lighter before the fire gutted the building.
Little said it happened too fast for him to think about anything other than saving everyone he could.
According to the Alabama Fire Marshal’s Office, since January there have been 50 people killed in house fires in Alabama.
Six of those victims were children younger than 9.
Northport Mayor Bobby Herndon declared June 20 Justin Little Day in the City Of Northport.
