A pro life kid like that is not welcome in NY.

RIP, little hero.

“Investigators believe the fire was caused by an electrical problem”

Consider this a wake up call to check your wiring, at least the obvious stuff like too many extensions and devices plugged in. Also plugs not properly inserted (dangling halfway in and out), broken insulation on cords, etc. Grease buildup on exhaust fans, particularly those in the kitchen.

Was this thing in the middle of the woods in a ditch?

Way to go, “neighbors”.

Boy? Child? Kid? I think he's earned the right to be called a man. RIP to a heroic young man.

Does the US have the equivalent of the George Cross to award to this boy?

Since news articles these days are so poorly written, I often must rely primarily on the numbers presented and construct the narrative myself.

And so, I see the number 6 and add 1 for the boy and 1 for the disabled uncle and I come up with 8. 8 people living in a single trailer including one with disabilities?

Tyler Doohan, 8, alerted his family that there was a fire and helped six people escape the mobile home — but died when he went back inside to help his disabled uncle and grandfather.

It may actually have been nine, as the boy’s grandfather also perished in the blaze.

Much better article here, from the UK.

"Investigators believe the fourth-grader then ran to the back of the trailer where his wheelchair-bound uncle, who was missing a part of his leg, was sleeping. He never made it out of the home.

The boy’s other uncle, Joseph Breyette, said his young nephew heard Smith calling for help inside the house and rushed in to get him."

Hero boy, 8, killed in trailer fire after saving SIX of his sleeping relatives and trying to go back and save his trapped amputee uncle:

He helped 6 get out and he died along with his uncle and grandad, so that makes 9. RIP young man. Your Father must be well pleased with you.

God gave him his reward early. Tyler wakes up in a far, far better place than the land he went to sleep in.

9 people were there.
Several, including the boy, were just visiting at the time.
I also heard it reported as a ‘doublewide’ trailer

but none of that really matters...
