Can we please get a round of applause for the Jeep driver who pulled a burning dumpster away from a building and prevented a Saginaw business from catching fire?

Take a look at the short video below and it will all make sense.

What Are the Details?

The dumpster fire occurred on Tuesday (5/28) outside the Volunteers of America Thrift Store on Bay Road just north of Tittabawassee Road in Saginaw.

Sarah, the store's assistant manager, posted the video to the Breaking News 989 Facebook page which is a Saginaw area community page.

Before the camera started rolling, the driver of a Jeep spotted the fire in the dumpster and realized what could potentially happen. He or she then attached a chain to the dumpster and the front of the vehicle and pulled it away from the building.

Thank You, Thank You

Sarah expressed her gratitude and shared appreciation on behalf of the staff of the thrift store, hoping the Good Samaritan would come forward.

"You do not know how grateful we are for your quick response and bravery. We appreciate you to the fullest. Please come into our store or contact me or the store manager personally. We appreciate you sir and could not get to you before you left!! Thank you a million times over!!!"

A few hours later, an update to the Facebook post indicated that the driver of the black Jeep had been located so the staff will be able to personally thank them for their service.

Midland's John Pratt Mosaic House

Just outside of Midland is the childhood home of gifted artist John Pratt. The home is adorned with shimmering bits of broken glass, china, and mirrored tiles that create a window into Pratt's creative soul.

Pratt suffered from mental illness and as part of his recovery, decorated the outside walls of the home with murals that, in the words of this website, "represented his illness, his re-discovered zest for living, and his beliefs about tolerance and unconditional love."

Since his death, the home has been owned and maintained by Creative 360 which offers guided tours of the premises. Our thanks to Ashley Cottrell who provided the pictures below.
