7-year-old Daryn Duncan From Shawnee, KS Hailed A Local Hero
7-year-old Daryn Duncan, from Shawnee, KS, is a local hero after alerting the authorities that his neighbor’s house was fire.
The Shawnee Fire Department said they were called to the fire near Nieman Road and W. 49th Terrace late Saturday evening.
The fire department said Daryn was visiting family and was the first to notice the fire. He quickly alerted his family and then helped the unknowing family out of the burning home.
"This fire could have been much worse if it had not been for this young man's quick thinking. The family is able to stay in their home tonight because we were alerted to the fire so quickly," said Shawnee Fire Marshal Corey Sands.
