Mike Duncan, the president of the Oklahoma State Firefighters Association, attended the Ponca City Board of Commissioners meeting Monday night to honor teenager Cheyenne Brown with the Oklahoma State Firefighters Association Heroism Award.
Cheyenne was honored for her heroism in saving her family in December of 2016 from a house fire on Elm Street. She ran into her 2-year-old brother’s room and found his bed had already caught fire. Cheyenne carried him to safety, then woke her father and managed to get the entire family out of the home. The house was engulfed in flames and all their possessions were destroyed, but the family was able to spend Christmas together because of her bravery.
Ponca City Fire Marshal Derek Cassady is the second vice president of the association and introduced Duncan.
