GORHAM, Maine — A 4-year-old boy who studied fire safety at his day-care center a few weeks ago used what he learned to help his family escape safely from a blaze in their basement apartment Monday.
Joseph Lamoin, who will turn 5 this month, woke at 5 a.m. to the smell and sight of smoke and did as he was taught.
