City workers lauded heros
Got Your 6ix Project Inc. is proud to recognize Klay Garner, Dustin Phy and Aaron Clark for their heroic actions that saved the life of an elderly woman from a house fire that took place this past week, Brandon Johnson, director of Got Your 6ix Project, said.
The three (who work for the city of Pea Ridge) had just left lunch at the Pea Ridge Cafe and were heading back to the shop on North Davis Street. The jeep in front of them had slammed on its brakes and immediately pulled into a driveway, according to Johnson.
When they saw the fire, they first made sure 911 had been called, then ran up to the house and were almost successful in putting out the fire with their fire extinguisher. However, it ran out. The fire started in the carport and had spread to the side of the house. Seeing this, Clark ran up to the door and began frantically pounding on the door to see if anybody was home.
That’s when the occupant, an elderly lady, answered and was assisted, along with her dog, safely out of the house. Clark also tried to save the cat, but was unable.
“It’s a small gesture that doesn’t fully reward their heroic actions, but I’m proud to recognize these city heroes!” Johnson said.
Brandon Johnson with Got Your 6ix Project Inc. presented T-shirts Saturday to three city employees — Klay Garner, Dustin Phy and Aaron Clark — for their heroism this past week.
