Watching or reading the news may remind us of how scary the world can be. And if a stranger decides to break down the front door, we’re therefore perhaps likely to assume that the worst is going to happen. When William Mackenzie entered a 94-year-old Californian woman’s home uninvited, though, he didn’t mean her any harm. In fact, he was actually trying to save her life.
Before Mackenzie encountered the senior, however, he had been driving to work along Valle Vista Avenue in Vallejo, California. And although the journey was one that he had made many times before, he was apparently confronted with something out of the ordinary on that particular morning in December 2017. Specifically, the 25-year-old saw what looked like a fire taking hold in a garage.
