Scott Smith and Stephen Ebbert approached an already-burning home the night of January 21st, but they were told people were trapped inside. So both gentlemen decided to rush in through walls of smoke and fire to try and rescue someone. After they brought a victim outside, they went right back in to get a second person.

   Both victims taken from the building ended up passing away, but that didn't stop the Lehigh Valley Health Network from giving these two Lehighton firefighers the Spirit of Courage Award for their heroic acts that night.
