Six-year-old daughter helped save her family during a house fire

6-year old girl name Madalyn Karlbon saved her family during a fire in the house. In the middle of the night, Madalyn woke up to the sound of an activated smoke detector.

She saw the smoke and immediately ran to alert her father Jimmy Karlbon who is the Avenel Fire Department Ex-Chief.

Without any hesitation, she jumped into action and ultimately saved the lives of her family by remembering all she was taught during fire prevention week and through the vast knowledge that her dad and fellow firefighter family has taught her.

They lost their home but the family remained safe because of the bravery of a young girl. Avenel fire department shared a post on their official Facebook page.

They said: “Madalyn, it goes without saying how bright and smart of a girl you are. This morning proved that. You recognized danger immediately and were able to assist in getting everyone out of the house before the fire got worse. To say all of us here at the Avenel Fire Department is so proud of you is an understatement. Way to go Madalyn. You’re indeed a hero.”

The family is staying in the hotel near the house until the renovation of the house completed.

Avenal fire department President Frank Strain said: “We’ve gotten a few dollars. It’s been quite a few. I haven’t counted them up yet, but it’s in the thousands.” He is like a brother to us, he added.
