Four boys extinguish ger fire, saving its disabled resident


Four boys from the ages of eight to 12 extinguished a ger fire in Murun soum, Khuvsgul Province, before the soum’s Fire Department arrived at the scene and saved the ger’s owner, a 58-year-old man with physical disability.
The boys said they were playing soccer outside the man’s yard when they saw the ger on fire and entered the yard to extinguish it.
The National Emergency Management Agency received a report about the fire at 3:17 p.m. on March 27, and arrived at the site in less than 10 minutes. The boys had removed the home’s owner and his belongings from the ger, and extinguished the fire before the soum’s National Emergency Management Agency’s firefighters arrived.
According to the Fire Department, the wind speed at the time of the fire was nine to 14 meters per second.
