He's only seven years old, but his instincts may have saved his Bourbon County family when their house caught fire Monday afternoon.

Hunter was a true hero when he detected the smell of smoke in the family home. He is a true little hero in my book. I am just so thank ful to God that this did not happen in the dead of night when everyone was asleep or the outcome might have been different, I am so happy that everyone got out ok and that the fire dept. was so fast in responding to the call. At lease it wasn't a total loss.
Christie and Raymond I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I know right now that you are thinking that it will never be the same again but in time you will have your home back to normal.

What are there Needs? Clothes? Toys? Maybe the paper will also run something to help this family along. There are some really good people in BC. That will help. Where to bring the stuff and what do they need? The sizes? I Pray for this family. Many Blessings. May The Angels Be Watching over them always.

Some good news to report! Thank God for the little boy that helped save his family! What a truly special miracle! The devastation that a fire causes is beyond belief and the outcome is usually horrific. Not long ago a Cynthiana family perished in a house fire. The pain and loss that fire caused will forever be etched in my mind. I will keep this family in my thoughts and prayers and hopefully the community can help place this family back into a home soon so that the healing process can begin. Congratulations little Hunter you are a true hero!

bed linens,twin and queen size, toys..Hunter, as everyone knows is 7 and his little sister Danica will be 4 in May. They pretty much lost all of their toys. If anyone knows of a place available for a 3 month lease please post and let us know. My e-mail address is lmac147@roadrunner.com if anyone knows of anything. The items they were able to save are being stored in my living room, so that tells you it isn't much. I will try to get answers to all these questions...feel free please to e-mail me and I will give sizes and items they are in need of. Thanks to everyone for the out-pouring of support.
