Webster, Wisconsin. It was Labor Day when Kelly Omar and her husband Jay decided to run out quickly to grab dinner.
They left their 5 children at home with their dog Mandy that night, and all 5 kids are between 13-years-old to 6-months-old.
Just minutes after Kelly and Jay left, their house caught fire with all the children inside.
Kelly and Jay’s 13-year-old son Briar Omar jumped into action as soon as he saw flames inside of the youngest child’s playpen.
“My sisters. That was the first thing I thought of. I knew I had to get them out of the house,” Briar said to WCCO.

Briar made sure that his 4 younger sisters got out of the house safely before he tried to put the flames out with a fire extinguisher.
Despite his quick thinking, the fire was too out of control at this point for Briar to stop it completely.
“And it went up in bigger flames and I just couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t see. I almost collapsed and then that’s when I felt my dog rub against me and I grabbed her and she led me out the door.”
