UPDATE: Good Samaritan Alerts Family to House Fire

More Video...

A good samaritan is being credited with alerting a Colby area family during a house fire Wednesday morning.

A 13-year-old girl says she was taking a nap inside the home when a man knocked at the door and said the roof was on fire. The girl tells us she was staying there with her two siblings and grandparents.

The fire was reported around 10:20 a.m. at a home on the 4000 block of State Highway 13 south of Colby in the Town of Hull.

The family tells us they aren't sure who the man is, but would like that person to know they are sincerely grateful.

The home is believed to be a total loss.
