A 16-year-old boy is getting the credit for saving a Grand Junction resident from his burning mobile home.

Luis Birron was visiting his uncle in Grand Junction, walking along a row of mobile homes last night, when he spotted a column of smoke rising from one home.

Luis ran up to the trailer, banged on the door and shouted to see if anyone was inside, and heard the faint voice of a man.

The teen shouted again for the man to get out, but the man refused, citing a lack of clothes.

Luis grabbed a towel off a nearby clothes line, threw it to the man, and pulled him from the flames.

Resident Ben Wilson soon thanked Luis, and tried to reward him for his bravery as they watched fire crews put out the blaze.

The boy's response: "No problem."

No word on what caused the fire.
