Three men who are used to responding after a fire happened went above and beyond to help prevent one.
Wednesday, West Virginia Assistant State Fire Marshals L.L. Price, T.S. Provaznik and S.E. Petry were honored during a ceremony at the State Capitol.
The family of an elderly man contacted them after he paid for electrical work at his home, but it was not properly done and the faulty wiring posed a fire hazard.
The man was unable to afford to have the work redone because he spent his money on the original job.
That's where the assistant fire marshal's stepped in.
According to a news release:
"Price, Provaznik and Petry stepped up. Price, a certified commercial and residential electrical inspector, reached out to former co-workers and formed a small team of licensed electricians to help with this project. Aided by local business that donated materials, they rewired the home at no cost to the resident."
