 WINGO, Ky. -  Seven people have a five year-old boy to thank for saving their lives after a Sunday morning house fire. 

According to family member Janet Pettif, fire broke out inside a home in the 800 block of Woodson Road in Wingo, Kentucky Sunday around 9a.m. 
 
Pettif said the boy noticed the fire and woke his father, who then woke two other adults in the home and three children. 
 
All of the people inside the home escaped unharmed.  The home belongs to Pettif's son and told Local 6 the fire started in one of the bedrooms.  While the bulk of the fire damage is to one room, the rest of the home sustained smoke damage.
