"Caller: We went to the gym and there's smoke everywhere and the alarm is going off."
"Dispatcher: Are you outside of the building with your family?"
"Caller: We're cleaning here."
Melanie Alfaro and her mother, Ana Fernandez, were inside working
"I decided to come with my mom because I do not like when she comes alone," said Alfaro.
They smelled smoke inside the gym.
"I walked back across the hallway, went to the gym that's where I could really smell the smoke. I went towards the hallway and all I could see was smoke everywhere," said Alfaro. "I freaked out, my mom was like relax and then she told me to call 911."
"Dispatcher: Are you out of the building?"
"Dispatcher: Well get out of the building, don't stay in the building if it's on fire!"
"I was like telling her to please leave, please let's just go outside," said Alfaro.
Paul Thein, President and CEO of the Greater Naples YMCA is now thanking them. He said they are part of the force that helped save the Y.
"We're so tickled that a young person could take such action to save our YMCA," said Thein.
