The instincts and quick actions of two sibling off-duty first-responders played key roles in the safe evacuation of Salem’s Karl’s Cabin restaurant when a fire broke out in the rear of the establishment on Feb. 15.
While eating dinner at Karl’s, Aaron Micek, a City of Plymouth Department of Municipal Services employee and a member of the city’s fire department, and his brother Adam, a Northville Township police officer, smelled smoke in the building.
After investigating the situation and confirming the presence of an active fire, the brothers used swift and calm actions to clear patrons from the building in an orderly fashion.
Thanks in part to the brothers’ actions, there were no injuries reported during the blaze, which cause significant damage to the rear of the structure.
Aaron Micek was recognized for his above-and-beyond actions at the Feb. 21 Plymouth City Commission meeting when he was presented with an official proclamation by Mayor Nick Moroz and named an Ambassador of Plymouth.
Furthermore, Micek’s name and/or image will be carved into an ice sculpture that will be on display at the 2024 Plymouth Ice Festival.
