Jonathan Martinez was in 2nd grade at Vena Stuart Elementary School last year when he saw the clown show. A few weeks later he woke up to find smoke in his bedroom. After calling out to his parents, he snapped into action by getting out fast and meeting his parents at the mailbox. Flame and Ax bounce around the room when they tell this story.
