In Detroit, Michigan, a 10-year-old little boy is being hailed as a hero after he saved the lives of his family and pets from a house fire early Tuesday morning. Youngster Luan Hunt Jr. had awakened to use the bathroom when he saw smoke and flames inside of his home.
According to WxyzDetroitNews, the fire was discovered by the youngster about 3:30 a.m., and when he had no luck waking up his brother, he ran into his father and grandmother’s rooms instead. Along with dad and his grandmother, four siblings and 10 dogs lived in the home – eight were puppies.
The family and most of the dogs made it out of the home with no injuries. Two dogs died in the blaze; one was a puppy. The dogs have all been taken to the humane society for treatment.
“I’m surprised that my son was so courageous because we haven’t had a plan for anything, but everything worked out for the best thanks to my son,” a proud dad told the news reporters.
Heroes come in all sizes. Good for you young man. We are sorry two of your dogs were not able to be rescued.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. (Photo of 10-year-old child and his dad via screenshot Wxyz )
