     The owner and two children trapped inside the burning Scaramouche Theatre on Popeshead Street, narrowly escaped with their lives yesterday, thanks to the heroism of a passer-by David Henry who risked his life to ensure their safety.
     
     The Scaramouche Theatre caught fire around 9 a.m. yesterday causing the owner Edson Buntin to run naked into the street with minor burns, where Henry assisted him with a towel and paramedics later attended to his injuries.
     
     Henry then ran into the burning building when he learned that two children were still trapped inside and brought them out to safety.
     
     Two fire trucks responded to the fire call and a third joined them on the scene but according to the Fire Department there was little they could do except to keep the fire from spreading to the adjoining buildings.
     
     The Scaramouche Theatre was the brainchild of owner Edson Buntin, a drama artist who used the facility to house small plays and concerts.
     
     The building was also used by a church and served as a home for Buntin who lived in an upstairs apartment.
     
     The Fire Department has not yet ascertained the cause of the blaze and is still investigating the matter.
