Briar Omar who is 13 years of age is being praised by his parents and his community in Webster Wisconsin on Monday afternoon when he took action to save his four sisters who were inside their parents home when a fire broke out on the first floor of their parents home. The playpen of the Omar home was on fire and filling up the house with smoke when Briar who is the oldest of the five children who took the advice of his parents to get his sisters of a home when a fire breaks out and save himself as well. Briar was able to get his sisters out of the burning home safely when he attempted to put out the fire by using a fire extinguisher. The problem was that the smoke inside of the home was so thick that Briar could not see his way through the smoke which could have been fatal had the family dog Mandy rubbed against him and he grabbed his dog who guided Briar out of the door. The parents of the child went out shopping for a short while when the fire broke out. When the parents of the five children who range in age from six months to 13 years of age arrived in time to see that their home had been burned severely. Even though the Omar family is going through hard times due to a house fire, they are grateful that no one was injured in the house fire. The friends of the Omar family are asking for help from GoFundMe.com to rebuild their home that was damaged by the fire. Not to second guess the intentions of the parents of the children but I just wonder why would they allow a 13 year old child be in charge of a home.

Thirteen is when children are allowed to do babysitting jobs as they are more responsible at that age. The fact this teenager was responsible shows in his actions to save his siblings. I'm glad the dog helped him get out of the house.
