BROWNSVILLE, TN -
(WMC-TV) - Seven people were inside a 100-year-old house on Windrow Road in Brownsville when fire broke out.
The family inside made it out alive thanks to a 6-year-old boy.
Taylor Hendrix was up late playing X-Box at his grandparents house around 4 a.m. Saturday when fire erupted inside.
"It started in the attic and came down the chimney," Hendrix said.
"He came in there and he was screaming papa, papa the house is on fire," said his grandmother, Paula Brown.
Brown and her husband, Mike, were all inside the burning house, along with five of their grandchildren.
When little Taylor woke them up, they quickly ran outside.
"Lost everything...everything we own," added Mike.
Brown used a water hose behind the house to try and put the fire out. But, it was too involved.
"Thank God he was up. He's my little hero. That's my tater-bug," the boy's grandmother said.
As a tree next to the house continued to smolder, Taylor and his family looked at the damage for the first time.
"It happened so quick, seven minutes, maybe 10 at the most...it was all done," Mike Brown said.
Brown is a meter reader in the city of Brownsville.
He says city employees and many local churches are pitching in to help them rebuild.
"Everything's gone. Gotta move on. Can't live in the past...pick up and start over again," Mike explained.
As this family tries to move on, they say they will be forever thankful.
"My grandson saved my life. He most certainly did," said Paula.
