Joe Eleby Junior, 50, is being praised as a hero for his action of rescuing three of his grandchildren from a house fire in Houston Texas that was started by an electric heater in the home on Sunday evening. Eleby went inside the duplex to rescue his granddaughter who is 8 years of age and his grandsons who are three and two years of age who were in the second floor in the duplex which is located on Lila Street. Eleby was able to get his granddaughter and his grandson out of the burning building in time before he found out he needed to rescue his youngest grandson. He was able to rescue his youngest grandson despite the flames in the home closing in on his grandson. The three children were taken to a local hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation but they should be able to make a full recovery from their ordeal. Eleby was taking care of his grandchildren while his daughter was working the night shift at her job. Even though Joe Eleby lost his home, having his grandchildren alive was his reward for his act of bravery of going inside a burning building to save his relatives. Since a house you can replace. A human life is not replaceable.
