Lorain – An early morning fire on West 23rd Street in Lorain sent one 6 year old girl to the hospital and has left two men as heroes.

Lorain Fire officials say the fire started in the garage at 1148 West 23rd Street and then spread into the home. As two men were driving by the home they spotted the garage fully involved and fire coming from the house. The men stopped to see if they could help and were told the 6 year old girl was still inside the home.

Without hesitation, Robert Clark, 24, of Lorain, and Jesse Bonds, 24, Lakewood, ran into the house and rescued the girl from the 2nd floor. While trying to leave the home the smoke was becoming too much and the men could not find the front door so they had to break out a window to exit the home.
LifeCare Paramedics treated Bond for minor cuts to his hands and knees but he refused transport to the hospital. The 6 year old was transported to Mercy Regional Medical Center for further evaluation and treatment.

The Lorain Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau is investigating the cause of the blaze.
