A young girl is credited with helping save a man's life after his house caught on fire in Park Hills.

The 6-year-old girl, Kate Gibson, said she saw her neighbor's house on fire from inside her own home and immediately told her mom.

"I told my mom 'call 911' and she looked out the window and then she saw the fire and then she called 911," said Gibson. "It was sort of scary, but I was just like 'just calm down.'"

After calling 911, Kate's mother Tennille Gibson rushed over to the neighbor's house.

"Finally he gets to the door and he's like 'what?' and I was like 'your roof is on fire, get out of this house now' and he was like 'oh, crap,'" said Tennille Gibson.

The man was able to get out of his home uninjured, but the home is a complete loss.
