Boy escapes Phoenix house fire, saves dogs

A boy escaped a house fire unharmed on Monday and officials say his quick thinking saved his life and the life of his dogs. When firefighters arrived at the scene near 22nd Avenue and Adams Street, they saw heavy smoke and flames emanating from the home.

"When I opened the door, smoke just got up inside the house, so I had to close it with all my muscles, so I closed it and tucked and rolled," explained 9-year-old Caleb Barker.

Caleb was doing his working when he heard something fall in the garage. That's where the fire started and quickly spread to the attic. His quick thinking got him out of harm's way, possibly saving his life. He dropped to the floor, grabbed one of his dogs, then rolled to the front door.

"Because I learned it from the TV. I learned how to tuck and roll and all of that," he said. "A lot of people stopped right in front of the house, got outside and tried to go inside to get my other dog. One of them got my dog and got her out safely."

Caleb's mother, Camille Barker is thankful her son is okay.

"Just really proud of him that he knew what to do and did what he was supposed to do. I'm glad that he paid attention enough to know that when there is a fire to do what he can to get out of the house."

Luckily, no one was hurt in this fire.

The cause is still under investigation.
