Kevin Arlinghaus was at home watching television when he smelled smoke.
“It didn’t smell like a barbecue. It smelled like burning plastic,” he said.
Kevin — who works for Best Buy subsidiary GreatCall — went outside to investigate and soon discovered a fire in a nearby garage at his townhome community in Carlsbad, California. Within minutes, the garage was fully engulfed in flames.
Kevin is now being hailed as a hero after calling 911 and helping save a 93-year-old woman and her adult grandson.
