Peter Grotz, a 15-year old member of local Boy Scout Troop #375, was riding in his father Gary’s car near the Seahurst Post Office on Sunday afternoon, June 29.

At the corner of 22nd Ave SW and SW 152nd, they noticed that a second story condominium’s railing and part of the floor of the outside deck was ablaze.

A woman was on the deck standing near the fire, and there were some onlookers nearby.

Peter asked his father if they should stop.

They did.

A bystander said she had called the fire department.

On the outside of the building was a hose attached to a faucet.

Peter helped man the hose and faucet such that the fire could be extinguished before the fire department arrived.

A “good turn daily” indeed…well done Peter!

Boy Scout Troop #375 meets at St. Francis, located just about a block to the east of this building.

    Astute observation, and a desire to serve – I’m glad he didn’t hesitate to take action.
