Along Georgetown Road at 12:45 this morning, a passing motorist realized a house was on fire and rather than taking a picture and posting it to F@ceTwitGram or even calling 911 while driving on, he stopped, got out, and hammered on the door until the occupants were awake and exiting the house.
Mission accomplished, he got in his car and left. Who was that helpful stranger? Nobody knows. But the family whose lives he saved admit they didn't have working smoke detectors; had he not stopped, they would probably all be dead now.
"If you see something, say something," works way better for Samaritans than snitches.
