WARREN, Mich. - A house fire in Warren could have been a lot worse if not for an alert 5-year-old girl.
A home on John B Avenue, near 8 Mile Road and Dequindre, caught fire Wednesday morning. The cause of the fire is not known.
The family of four escaped the fire safely after the 5-year-old girl woke up, smelled smoke and helped get her family members out of the home.
The fire started in the front living room area.
This is a developing story.
This is video from the scene on Wednesday morning:
