My older brother also ran around to the neighbors and helped get them out of his house (in just his boxers). #HometownHero
My sister in law gives a description of the horrible event: "Gibson was barking and woke us up. Mark went to get a drink we just assumed Gibson was being a dog. I smelled smoke and assumed it was someone smoking in the ally way. I looked out our window and noticed reflection of fire on the opposite building and asked mark if there was a fire. He said there was and to get out of the house. I grabbed Evan who was literally in a diaper. Mark grabbed Gibson and we ran out. When we ran out mark immediately went to get our neighbors out because it was visibly in flames. One of our neighbors was yelling for help. As mark did that I called 911. After I hung up with them I wanted to help mark get people but I had Evan and Gibson so I just started screaming for everyone to get out of their house that there was a fire because at that point it was burning fast and no one was there or coming out of their houses. Within 20 minutes mark (in his underwear) and a police officer had evacuated everyone from our building and it was engulfed in flames."
