TEEN SAVES FAMILY FROM FIRE
A teenage boy may have saved the lives of his family early this morning when he got them up and out of their burning home. The fire occurred in a two story home at 1220 East Tenth Street.
Sedalia Fire Battalion Chief Paul Withers tells KDRO News the call of a smoke alarm going off came in about six twenty this morning.
Homeowner Michael Hawkins credits his seventeen year old son with waking the family.
Hawkins, his wife, and three children all made it out safely. Fire Department crews were on the scene more than two hours.
