FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (WSVN/CNN) - Pearly the pet parrot is one bird that's earned her keep.
Her family is crediting the bird with saving them from possible injury or even death in a house fire.
The parrot woke the family early Tuesday morning with noisy, loud squawking. It turns out the laundry room was on fire.
Emergency crews quickly arrived and put out the flames, containing the damage to just one room, all thanks to Pearly.
