Little Boy, Big Fire

Here's a sweet and simple story about a boy and a fireman. Paul Hashagen is a firefighter in Long Island, New York. One day he was watching his 8-year-old grandson Matthew Smith, who was out of school with an illness, when a fire call came in. Hashagen leapt into action, taking Matthew with him.

The fire was serious, so he parked Matthew in a fire truck to wait. Matthew had never been to a fire before, and was forbidden to leave the truck, but still found a way to be useful. You can probably tell how by the picture, but you should really go read the entire story at The Daily Beast.
