Three young people from Iowa City are being honored for saving their neighbor's life.

At Tuesday's City Council meeting, Police Chief Sam Hargadine and Fire Chief John Grier recommended Javeyel, Marquelle, and Jaztinique Jones receive a a Lifesaving Commendation. Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek presented the awards.

According to police and firefighters, there was a garage fire on July 10 in the 600 block of south 1st Avenue. The three siblings saw the fire and heard a man screaming for help. They called 911. Firefighters saved the man and he spent several weeks in the hospital. Emergency crews say without the quick actions from the Jones siblings, they may not have gotten to the garage in time.
