in Community by

The Beaufort County School Board and the Burton Fire District recognized Tyrik Kelly at the school board meeting on Thursday, Oct. 23 for reporting a possible house fire while on his way to school on October 7 and enabling the Burton Fire District to catch a small but growing kitchen fire before any significant damage could occur, not only saving the home but keeping the responding firefighters safe.

The Burton Fire District presented Tyrik with a plaque and the fire department wives support team also gave him a gift card.
