She’s only just turned 4, but Rosie Moran is already a junior firefighter. And the preschooler has certainly earned the special status.

Recently while biking around her Boise, Idaho, neighborhood ahead of her father, Sean Moran, and her little sister, Rosie spotted black smoke billowing from a home. Rosie “came speeding back to me,” Sean told KTVB, and she screamed, “Daddy, there’s a fire in one of the houses!”

Very clever and impressive poem, particularly given the young poet's age.

Really enjoying this thread, all!

This is more along the lines of fun news but I thought it's a really cool and unique use of billboards. I wish they would do this in my area.
