A REAL LIFESAVER… Nicole Burrows of Bangor Township was honored at the December 11 Hartford Township Board meeting with a plaque presented by Hartford Fire Department Captain Mike Chappell, as (from the left) Chief Robby Harting looks on along with Firefighters Steven Fry and Brandywine Harting. Burrow is credited with saving the lives of Brenda Rodriquez and her 11-year-old son who were sleeping on the evening of December 3 when their residence at 65266 Red Arrow Highway caught fire. Burrows spotted the flames, ran to the door and pounded until she awakened the pair just as the house became totally engulfed in flames resulting in a total loss. “Nowadays the term hero gets thrown around too often for just about anything… but when an individual risks their own safety to save another… that indeed is a true hero…” said Chappell.
