My hero is a schoolgirl. Her name isYulia Chernova. She saved three younger brothers and two sisters from the fire.
It happened on February 2, 2017 in the village of Teterevino of the Belgorod region in Russia. There the family of the Pervukhins lived: parents and six children.They were Yulia - 10 years, Daria - 8 years, Alexander - 7 years, Kiril - 5 years, Angelina - 3 years, Arseny -ayear and a half.

 In the afternoon the parents were away. Yulia was left to look after the younger children.
They were watching TV. Suddenly one of the brothers saw that the fire had begun in one of the rooms. At that time half the room was on fire, the cupboards and the doors were burning. Younger brothers and sisters ran to the distant rooms, crying and screaming with horror. They began to hide under the beds.

Yulia took a bottle of water and tried to put out the fire. But all efforts were in vain: the flame was too strong, and by this time the exit from the house had been already blocked by the fire.
