An 8-year-old Hutchinson boy is being credited with alerting his father to a house fire in time to save his two brothers.
But the Hudson family lost their home and all their belongings in the Monday fire.
The family says Tyler Hudson saw smoke and flames coming out of the roof of his home as he boarded the school bus. He called to his dad, who was able to run inside and rescue his 6- and 4-year old sons. The children's mother was at work.
The Hutchinson News reports the family's cat died in the fire, which is still under investigation.
The family is staying at a hotel. They were already remodeling a new home and planned to move, although it will be some time before it's done.
