A Pennsylvania teen sprung into action to save several apartment residents after a fire broke out early Monday morning.

Falon O'Regan, 17, was about to go to bed in the four-unit building located at the 100 block of Church Street in Bentleyville when he saw the flames coming from the front porch of the complex.

The 17-year-old, who lives with his mother, Rebecca Williams, sat outside the remains of the complex on Wednesday morning, as the pair emotionally recalled the tragic incident during a phone interview with DailyMail.com.

'I opened the [front] door.. and I was flabbergasted,' O'Regan said as he recalled the moment he first caught sight of the flames. 

'I stared at it for a couple of seconds, closed it, grabbed the stuff that I could, broke a door, broke a window, and I jumped.'

The blaze broke out shortly before 1am on Monday. O'Regan quickly grabbed what he could from his room before jumping out of window to help others. The 17-year-old grabbed a trampoline nearby to allow people from the second story of the two-story complex to jump to safety

O'Regan was completely shocked by the flames. About 18 people reside in the building, and all O'Regan thought about was saving them

O'Regan instantly thought about the children who live throughout the complex, and attributes his heroic actions to the desire to save them.

'I thought about the kids, and what I would do if I was younger,' he said. 'I just thought I'd panic, so I just had to do this.' 

O'Regan ran back to his room to grab his birth certificate and wallet before leaping out the window. 

He was left with no time to grab anything else, but left open a window and door for his four cats to try to escape as he rushed to help the others. 

Before leaping out the window of his apartment complex, O'Regan grabbed his phone and birth certificate. He left a window and door open in hopes his four cats would make it out alive

'The shorts I had on at the time had no pockets,' he said. 'I had no shoes on. I was walking around barefoot.'
