OTTAWA, Kan. -- An Ottawa man put his life in danger to save 10 people who were sleeping inside an apartment building that caught fire.
Peaden Harley, 21, said he was saying goodbye to his friends early Saturday morning when he saw flames coming out of an apartment building next door.
"There were kids in that house, and all I could think about were my kids," Harley said.
He said he pounded on everyone's doors and one man didn't budge, so he kicked his door down. Harley said the man was hysterical, thinking he was breaking in to steal something.
Mike Raymond said he was sleeping on a bed that was on fire and the flames were shooting up next to his girlfriend's one-week-old baby.
Raymond said if Harley didn't go inside the burning building to wake people up, some of them would not have made it out alive.
