Firefighters honor two area children for using fire safety skills

March 19, 2017

At the February meeting of the Sussex County Volunteer Firefighters Association, the membership honored Carmen Giacubeno and Luci Martin-Rodriguez for their efforts alerting Carmen's grandmother when a fire took place in their home Jan. 6.

The fire occurred in The Meadows development in Georgetown. As the fire broke out, Carmen and Luci were alerted to the emergency and used skills they learned in school to arouse Carmen's grandmother, Cheryl Fee, who was asleep on the opposite side of the home.

Luci attends Southern Delaware School of the Arts and Carmen attends East Millsboro Elementary.
