A teenager from Sheffield has been recognised for his bravery after going into a burning building fearing children were trapped inside.
19-year-old delivery driver Ethan Maillard saw the blaze on Netherthorpe Walk and onlookers told him children could be upstairs. He kicked in the door and searched rooms in the smoke filled house. The house was empty but he managed to avoid injury after jumping down the stairs to avoid injury.
He suffered smoke inhalation and was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation in a ceremony at Mansfield Road fire station.
