Four-year-old saves family from fire

By Washington Post editors

Family members say a four-year-old Maryland boy deserves the credit for saving the family from a devastating house fire, WJLA reports.

Four-year-old Kaleb Brawley asked his dad if he could stay up late for Mother's Day. Luckily, Larry Brawley gave in. Kaleb was downstairs watching TV in the family's Severn home, when he noticed flames creeping into the dining room. Kaleb, who learned the dangers of fires through family camping trips, immediately began yelling for his family to get out.

The boy, his father, his grandmother and two dogs ran out of the house just in time. It took more than 60 firefighters to put out the violent blaze.
