Hero Goat Alerts Family to Fire

Nick Bruce wasn’t thrilled when his daughter, Abigail, got a goat as an early 10th birthday gift last Thursday. But just two days later, Speedy won a place in his heart when he saved his new family from a fire in their Arkansas home. Speedy woke Abigail up at 1 a.m. “It was bouncing on me and screaming,” and that’s when she noticed smoke in her room. She ran to tell her dad. “I'm glad we got it before the fire happened or we wouldn't be here,” said Abigail. Her dad agrees. “He is not going anywhere!” he said. The family is now staying at a friend’s house until they can get back on their feet. — Watch it at Arkansas Matters
