A Mansfield, Texas child is being hailed as a hero after saving his family from a fire.

Fox News 4 reports that 7-year-old Damian Grimsley was awakened by the fire at around 2:00 AM Monday morning. The child made his way around the flames and into the hallway to his parents’ bedroom.

The boy’s father attempted to put out the flames but could not. The parents and all three of their children made it out of the home safely.

The home was completely destroyed in just minutes. Fire investigators have not issued an official cause of the blaze, but a power strip near the boy’s bed may be the culprit.
