CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A high school senior was honored for his heroism after alerting residents to a Walnut Hills fire.

On Wednesday night, there was a fire at the six unit apartment building where Juvock Fullman lives.

Juvock, a senior at Horizon Science Academy, noticed the fire, ran up the stairs, through the smoke, to tell the residents to evacuate.

The fire department arrived and used their ladders to rescue three people on the third floor, including a child.

Juvock was honored at his school Monday morning in Bond Hill.

Juvock says if he was ever in the same situation, he'd do it all over again.
