SAN FRANCISCO – A young boy named Luca helped his neighbors when he spotted the apartment across the street on fire near Ocean Beach.

The three-year-old was smart enough to tell his parents to call 9-1-1.

In a video posted Sunday on the San Francisco Fire Department’s social media, Luca can be heard answering his mother’s questions.

What did you say to mommy and daddy?

Call 9-1-1!

And did you save the day?


Firefighters said this fire could have led to a tragic ending if it weren’t for Luca’s quick thinking. 

The fire department says he’s proof that it’s important to teach children about fire safety.
