10 year old saves family from fire

A ten year old boy from Eunice is being called a hero after alerting his mother to a fire that destroyed everything the family owned, including their car.

Because of Landyn Browns quick eye and judicious actions, he and his family walked away with their lives. Now the family is left rummaging through decades of memories, salvaging anything they can. The fire happened Easter morning around 1:30 a.m. That’s when Landyn said he heard crackling noises coming from outside.  He alerted his mother right away, who at first didn't believe him. 

But upon checking she noticed smoke and flames in the car port. The fire quickly spread to the house but thanks to Landyn’s quick response he got his brother and sister to safety.


The family lost nearly everything they owned in the fire, including their car. If you'd like to help them get through this difficult time a ‘go fund me’ account has been set up at www.gofundme.com/8hes54 or you can call Elizabeth Roger, the mother, on her cell phone at 337-466-6711.
