Clearfield boy saves woman during house fire

Clearfield – The mayor of Clearfield is crediting the actions of a young boy for helping save a woman’s life during a house fire Friday night.

Mayor Mason Strouse, and Clearfield area firefighters say a third-grade boy, Cooper, was playing outside when he noticed flames coming from his neighbor’s house.

Cooper quickly notified a family member, who then called 9-1-1.

Firefighters quickly arrived on scene to find a working house fire at 401 East Cherry Street with a woman trapped on the third floor.

The unnamed woman was rescued from her apartment within minutes and treated at the scene.

Strouse posted on social media that “because of Cooper’s quick action, a life was saved.”

Fire crews were able extinguish the flames with most of the damage contained to one room.
