      (WJLA) - To her family, seven-year-old Imani Rivers is a hero.

      She alerted her mom to a fire that broke out in their kitchen on Friday night. The second grader and an eight-year-old friend were in her grandmother’s kitchen when they heard a pop – suddenly, flames started shooting out of the bottom of the gas stove.

      With smoke billowing up the walls and the stove filled with fire, Dianna Rivers says her young daughter just did what she was taught in school:

      “When they saw the smoke and saw that something was really wrong, they said something -- they didn't cry."

      The two little girls got Rivers, who then evacuated her own mother, son, and the girls while calling 911.

      Imani’s principal at Center City Public Charter School told us she credits the D.C. Police officers who visit daily.

      The advice obviously stuck, and the little girl knew just what to do in a grown-up situation.



       

      Look out for the homeless this winter. When the actual or forecasted temperature or wind chill is 32 degrees F or below, the District issues a Hypothermia Alert. To request support for persons who are homeless and on the street now, contact the Shelter Hotline at 1-800-535-7252 or 311 or email uposh@....
