A 13-year-old Wisconsin teen saved his four sisters from a house fire while their parents were at the grocery store on Monday (September 6).
Briar Omar said one of his sisters noticed it was starting to get smoky inside the house. When they turned around, they realized the playpen had caught on fire. Once Briar saw the fire, he acted quickly. "My sisters. That was the first thing I thought of and I just knew I needed to get them out of the house."
Once Briar got his sisters to safety, he tried to go back into the house to distinguish the fire using a fire extinguisher, but the smoke became too much for him.
"It went up in bigger flames. I just couldn't breathe, I couldn't see and then I almost collapsed. That's when I felt my dog rub against me, I grabbed her and she led me out the door," Briar told WCCO.
The kids' ages range from six months to 13 years old. Thanks to Briar and his quick thinking, everyone made it out unharmed.
"We're just so thankful that every single one of them made it out. So if it wasn’t for my son, I don’t know where I'd be," Kelly noted.
