Following Brandon’s warning, the family safely made it outside, but their house was burned to the ground.

“It’s going to be a long, hard road to replace those material items. But at the same time, if it wasn’t for my son’s guardian angel that morning, I don’t know where we would be.
It’s a miracle from God that he was able to notify us of the fire,” she said.

Kayla added that while Brandon has no comprehension of the impact of what he did, he is relishing the abundant attention he receives.

"When people recognise us in the supermarket, they usually pat him on the back and try shaking his hand. They call him a hero,” she said.
