MONTCALM (WVVA) - A Montcalm Elementary student who helped his family escape from a devastating house fire last year was honored for his heroic efforts Thursday.

Tyler Breeden was honored during a special program at the school Thursday morning.

Breeden was able to alert his family to a fire in their Montcalm-area home last November, allowing all to escape safely.

In addition to honoring Breeden's efforts, Thursday program was also designed to raise students' awareness of fire safety.

Students were given smoke detectors provided by First Alert, A+ Construction and Kiddie Industries, with help from community volunteer Denny Whitesel.

The Montcalm Volunteer Fire Department assisted the school with the event.
