SNELLVILLE, GA (CBS46) - A 13-year-old girl is being hailed a hero after saving her brothers from a fire.

A fire broke out at a home on the 3100 block Hall Garden Road in Snellville around 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

Amia Polk heard the smoke alarm going off and after checking out the house, she saw the kitchen was on fire.

She immediately grabbed her younger brothers, ages 7 and 10, who were asleep upstairs. Amia managed to get them safely out of the home. The teen said she learned what to do during a fire from her teacher at Shiloh Middle School, Pamela Scott, just a few weeks earlier.

The Gwinnett County Fire Department responded and extinguished the flames.

The family's possessions were damaged by the smoke and fire.

The children's parents were at work at the time of the fire. No one was injured.
