Memphis boy hailed as hero after waking family during fire
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Firefighters are crediting an 11-year-old Memphis boy with saving his family from a fire that broke out at their apartment.
When fire crews arrived at Ten Mile Creek Apartments a few minutes after the call came in, flames were coming through the roof. By then, everyone was out and no injuries were reported.
Cooke says firefighters consider the boy a hero for his efforts.
WMC-TV reports the Red Cross is helping the family.
