THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL)--A Thomasville woman is honored for saving lives during a fire.

Wanda Thomas alerted residents at a home and they were able to get out safely on April 30. 

Once firefighters got there, she gave them information that allowed them to search and find the remaining people inside the home. 

"It is my opinion that without her we wouldn't have everyone from that home with us today," said Thomasville Fire Marshal Tim Connell. 

That is why Thomas was presented with the Thomasville Fire Rescue Good Citizen Award at Monday night's city council meeting.
