'Speedy' the goat saves family from house fire
JONESBORO, Ar. (KAIT / CNN Newsource / WKRC) - An Arkansas family was alerted of a house fire by a screaming goat.
'Speedy' has always been loved by young Abigail since the day she got him, but not by her father, Nick Bruce. That was until 'Speedy' saved their lives.
Late one night, Speedy was screaming and jumping on Abigail.
Abigail awoke to see the fire outside and ran to go wake up her father.
"Abi came running in the bedroom and said it was smokey and she couldn't hardly breath," Nick said. "We could see the fire coming around the outside of the windows."
The family got out of the house safely.
"I'm just glad that we got out before the fire happened or we wouldn't be here," Abigail said.
While Nick didn't care for Speedy at first, now he has a different opinion.
"Aw we're good now. He ain't going nowhere."
