Woman breaks down door, saves teens from house fire at Big Grassy River First Nation


A woman from Big Grassy River First Nation (Mishkosiminiziibiing) in northwestern Ontario broke down the door of her neighbour's home to rescue two teens from a house fire on Tuesday night.

Ivory Tuesday, 30, said she was compelled to act after a 911 dispatcher told her no fire trucks would be sent from neighbouring municipalities, since there are no funding agreements in place. The First Nation's own fire truck is under repair.

She said she set aside her own fear after spotting flames through the window of her neighbour's house and hearing sounds of people inside.
