Teen rescues elderly man & dog from fire


(KCRA)  A 14-year-old boy smelled smoke while inside a Fairfield, California apartment and immediately jumped into action — saving an elderly man and a dog from the fire, officials said Monday.

Just before 7:30 p.m. Saturday Latrell McCockran was at his friend’s apartment when the four-alarm apartment blaze broke out.

A smoky smell hit Latrell first, so he grabbed one of the fire extinguishers.

The teen then spotted an elderly, disabled man struggling to get out of a smoke-filled apartment unit.
