Fire officials said Noah Woods woke up to discover his bedroom was on fire. The only way to escape was a window, and Noah managed to get himself, his 2-year-old sister and the family dog out of the burning building.

He ran next door and woke up his uncle to alert the rest of the family, fire officials said.

“In doing that, (Noah) received some minor burns to his arm and his hands, and of course singed hair,” Bartow County Fire Chief Dwayne Jamison told NBC affiliate WXIA of Atlanta. “His 2-year-old sister received some burns to her feet.”

In total, Noah and four other family members had to be treated after the fire.

"But because of his quick actions, he also alerted the rest of the family members, so a total of eight family members were able to get out of the house with only minor injuries and smoke inhalation," Jamison said.
