An 11-year-old boy in Maryland is being hailed as a hero after he ran into a burning apartment Tuesday to save his 2-year-old sister.

The incident took place around 6 p.m. as a blaze erupted at the two-story Salisbury residential building, according to the Office of the State Fire Marshal.


At least eight units were in the wood-frame apartment building, according to a report.

When the 11-year-old boy discovered the fire, he initially left the building before realizing that his sister was still inside, the report noted.

Recognizing his sister was in danger on the second floor, the boy ran back inside and returned with the young girl.

The boy suffered minor injures, including a slightly burned arm, authorities said.

"His injuries were so minor they did not require on-scene medical attention," the state fire marshal said.

Firefighters managed to put out the blaze in under 10 minutes.

At least $250,000 in damage was done to the building's structure, and an additional $40,000 in damage was caused to the building's contents.

Two of the apartment units were rendered uninhabitable, but all the buildings occupants inside at the time of the blaze are safe, authorities said.


The cause of the fire has been identified as an electrical event that took place inside a second-story bedroom, but it has not been made clear where the parents of the children were during the fire.

Im an 82-year-old grandmother I was shocked to be arrested over a $77 trash bill but people agree its shameful

OUTRAGE is growing online with people upset in finding that an elderly grandma has been left in tears after being handcuffed, arrested and thrown in jail over her trash bill.

An Alabama city police agency arrested 82-year-old Martha Menefield because she didn’t pay a $77.80 trash bill and the grandmother didn’t know the officers were serious about booking her at first. 

1 An Alabama city police agency arrested 82-year-old Martha Menefield because she didn’t pay a $77.80 trash bill and the grandmother didn’t know the officers were serious about booking her at first

She initially thought the two officers that arrived at her home were joking when they said she was under arrest for failing to pay the garbage service bill, the octogenarian told KTLA News.

Valley Police Department posted a statement on Facebook Tuesday defending the arrest of Menefield, saying multiple attempts were made to collect her debt.

In the post defending the agency’s arrest of the elderly woman, Valley Police Chief Mike Reynolds also disclosed that Menefield has a history of suspended service.

They claimed that she didn’t pay the bill during the months of June, July, and August.

“I’m just happy my grandkids weren’t here to see that,”

“That would have upset them,” she added.

“I was so ashamed, and it’s been bothering me.”

The elderly woman recalled one of the officers telling her “Don’t cry, Ms. Martha,” as she started to break out in tears again while describing the ordeal to KTLA.

“He kind of whispered it to me,” she said. “‘Don’t cry.'”

The police agency’s Facebook post said Menefield was left with a citation on her door that advised her that she was to appear in court on September 7, 2022 because of the trash bill.

“A warrant for Failure to Pay-Trash was issued when she did not appear in court,” the post stated.

The comments on the post were full of people who were nothing short of furious that Valley Police arrested Menefield over the bill.

Someone said: “Without government, who would kidnap an 82-year-old for forgetting to pay her trash bill for a couple months?”

They added: “God forbid some of your officers pool together the less than $100 to pay it. I’m sure it cost way more than that in police resources to arrest her,

“Mayor Riley, you have the ability to fix this nonsense by pardoning Ms. Martha. Use it.”

Another person simply said: “This is so shameful.”

They went on to say: “The parties responsible deserve every single bit of the negativity it brings.”

Someone else chimed in saying: “Good thing none of the entire police staff has a heart and could try and arrange to help an 82-year-old woman with a less than $100 trash bill before coming to arrest her.”

“[You all] just keep flaunting your heartlessness,” they added. “And see how far that gets you with public opinion and trust.”
