Teen Meets Firefighter Heroes After Saving Family From Burning Home

FRANKLINTON (Kate Liebers) -- A 13-year-old boy, who has already displayed the makings of a firefighter, got the chance to meet some of his local hero Tuesday.

Investigators say Jeremiah Conkey saved a family by kicking in a door of a burning home and saving the couple that was inside. The next day, he was invited into the private world of Fire Station 10. 

Ive never been kicking doors in and saving people when I was 13, said firefighter Andy Leider, who has been with the station almost four months. So hes got a head start, thats for sure.

Jeremiah said the tour inspired him to study hard so his dreams of becoming a firefighter can come true.
