A 12-year-old boy who saved three of his brothers from a fire in southeast Nebraska will be honored by the American Red Cross.
Blake Vitale will be given a Good Samaritan Award at the Red Cross' Cornhusker Chapter's Tribute to Heroes dinner on May 2 in Lincoln.
He says he and five brothers had decided to stay overnight at his dad's home in Salem on Thanksgiving after dining with his mother and stepdad.
Blake says he awoke to hear his dad's girlfriend screaming about a fire she'd discovered in the kitchen.
Blake says he roused three of his brothers and helped them downstairs into safety outside. He went back in for the other two boys, not knowing that his dad had already saved them.
