Stranger Saves Man from Arthur House Fire

Posted: Updated:

We all remember "Miracle on 34th Street" as a classic holiday movie. Yesterday, there was a real life miracle on Highway 34 in Arthur, North Dakota. A family's home went up in flames as a young man was sleeping inside. Joey Strauss made it out alive, thanks to a complete stranger. His mother, Jody Zieske, says the woman was a guardian angel.

Around 3 p.m. on Thursday, Joey left the family turkey gathering at his grandma's house to head home. That's when a fire started in the basement. Joey was asleep as the fire broke out. The smoke detectors were going off and he still didn't wake up. Joey says that's when he heard a woman yelling to him that the house was on fire. Joey was able to make it out of the house safely, along with the family's dogs.

Neighbors and firefighters say they have no clue who the lady is who woke Joey up. Someone did see her get in a car with another man, but that's all they know about the mystery person. Everyone is just calling it a true thanksgiving miracle.

If you would like to help the Zieskes as they go through this time of need, a fund has been set up in their name at the First State Bank in Arthur.
