This was in the Hearald today. Bob Reilly has had to douse some figurative flames in his time as a Manly director, but he had to contend with the real thing during the week. Reilly was driving along Collaroy plateaue on Monday when he noticed one of the houses on fire. He pulled over the car, pulled elderly owner Warren Barrett out of the inferno and- with the help of a neighbour- put out the blaze before it spread from the garage to the house. All this happened while Barretts wife watched the scene unfold from her wheelchair out the back. By the time the firies arrived,they didnt even need to turn on their hose. "You dont think about it at the time, you just do it because it needs to be done." Reilly said. When I went into the building to get him out, the fire was running up the ceiling and up the walls all around us. It was a wisker off ending up a lot worse than it was and going to the main house". Reilly then organised tickets for Barrett to attend Saturday nights Manly match to lift his spirits. There was a story in the Manly daily on saturday as well. Bob was in for coffee 4 times during the week and never mentioned this. Good work Bob.
