Frank A. Manente saved Johnothan A. Beatty, Mitchell Rice, and Natasha L. Johnson from burning, Alpena, Michigan, June 15, 1989. Johnothan, 5; Mitchell, 2, and Natasha, 2, were in separate bedrooms of a one-story house when fire broke out in one of the bedrooms. A visitor at the house, Manente, 34, air-conditioning installer, went to the bedroom containing Johnothan and, discovering the fire, carried him out of the house. Manente then re-entered the house, located Mitchell, and carried him out. Although flames by then had spread to the hall adjoining the bedrooms and the heat was intense, Manente entered the house again, located Natasha, and, crawling, removed her from the house.
