Teen alerts family to roaring house fire in Surprise

Posted: Updated:

When a fire breaks out in a home, sometimes you have only seconds to get out. A family in Surprise found that out firsthand.

Crews boarded up a garage Thursday night after an inferno roared through the home and displaced a family.

Jeep Porter noticed the smoke from his window and alerted his family. He helped get all his family members out, along with their 3 dogs and 7 cats.

"You hear about it, you watch it on the news, you never think it'll happen to you," says dad Torrey Porter. "I'm proud of him, his whole life he's been a help."

The family has a place to stay tonight, thanks to their church.

FOX 10's Dan Spindle has more on their survival story.
