Mensah, 28, was among the 13 victims of the fast-moving fire that destroyed the Prospect Ave. building on Dec. 28. After the fire broke out on the first floor of the building, the young soldier, who was home for the holidays, saved four lives. Mensah raced in and out of the burning building at least three times bringing others to safety but he was unable to make it out himself. He died on the fourth floor, where he was trying to evacuate other residents.
