One of Dormont's youngest residents has been honored for helping firefighters during a recent blaze.

The Dormont Volunteer Fire Department, Dormont Council and a representative for state Rep. Dan Miller, D-Mt. Lebanon, said on Monday that Noah Zych, 4, assisted firefighters during a four-alarm fire on May 8 on Crosby Avenue.

Noah offered emergency responders bottles of sports drinks from his house to help them handle the heat, which was around 80 degrees that day, and was made worse by the blaze, Dormont Mayor Phil Ross said.

Officials proclaimed June 2 as “Noah Zych Day,” offered Noah a framed certificate and uniform patch from the Dormont Volunteer Fire Department and gave him a ride to Monday's council meeting in a fire engine.
