Glenn H. Peterson rescued Lisa J. Howard from burning, Harvey, Michigan, September 12, 1989. Miss Howard, 26, was inside her family’s home when fire broke out and filled the house with dense, black smoke. A neighbor, Peterson, 34, construction worker, saw smoke issuing from the house and ran to it to see if anyone was inside. Despite intense heat and the lack of visibility because of the smoke, Peterson crawled into the house and located Miss Howard in the living room. He seized her, crawled backward to the door, and exited, pulling Miss Howard to safety moments before the living room was engulfed in flames. Miss Howard was hospitalized 16 days for treatment of smoke inhalation and burns.
