Woman who alerts family to fire called more than a hero

A family saved from a raging fire when a woman knocked on their door in the middle of the night says the stranger is more than a hero. “That’s an angel,” Josh Ellis said. “He saved our family, no exaggeration. He stayed and saved our family. I mean, the house was on fire.” Brittany Downing said without the stranger’s actions, she doesn’t know if she and Ellis would have lived to care for their children, who were also inside their Ohio home when the fire broke out. The woman is shown on camera ringing the doorbell and yelling at 1:06am. of the 5th of July. “The kids’ garage is on fire,” screamed Hayley “Moss” Strong. The family didn’t know the house was on fire. With the way the wind was blowing, no one inside could smell the smoke and the smoke detectors didn’t go off even though the garage was already completely wrapped. Everyone — Ellis, Downing and their nine children — got out. “I didn’t know how many people were in the house, let alone that many kids,” Strong said. Strong and the family were recently reunited for the first time since the fire. Strangers now call each other family and there is another name the saved call the Strong. “You’re such an angel, I swear you are,” a family member said as she hugged Strong. “It was really beautiful. I was surprised at how much emotion I felt. Obviously, I was happy to be able to help them out and get them out OK, but it was great to see them in person,” Strong said.
