TILTON, N.H. (AP) – A 4-year-old Tilton, N.H., boy alerted his family to a fire that ended up consuming their home.

Firefighters from six towns worked to put out the fire Tuesday. Officials said the homeowner was at work, and her 16-year-old son was asleep in the living room when the 4-year-old alerted him to the fire in the front bedroom.

Everyone, including the family dog, escaped, but the family lost everything.

Investigators said the fire is not suspicious, but they are still trying to determine the cause.
