Daniel F. Gorzen saved Meta M. Irvine from burning, Ann Arbor, Michigan, March 26, 1995. Ms. Irvine, 66, was at home when fire erupted on the first floor of the house and spread. Gorzen, 28, businessman, responded to the scene, as did other neighbors, one of whom entered the house in an attempt to remove Ms. Irvine but was then repulsed by dense smoke. Gorzen went to the back of the house, entered a door into the recreation room, and crawled through the dense smoke across the room. Locating Ms. Irvine on a couch about 15 feet from the door, Gorzen stood, pulled Ms. Irvine to her feet, then hurried out of the house, pulling her. Ms. Irvine was hospitalized for treatment of smoke inhalation and minor burns, and she recovered.
