5-year-old girl saves blind grandmother from burning home

If you've ever wondered in school, "When am I ever going to use this in real life?" this 5-year-old girl in Kenner, Louisiana, will have an answer for you.

Cloe Woods led her grandmother to safety out of a burning home all thanks to a fire safety course she took at the Kenner Fire Department.

When the stove in her home caught on fire Wednesday morning, Woods ran to her blind grandmother's room and sprang into action, her mom Shone Arceneaux, said.

"She told my mom to hold her shoulder and that they had to get out of the house," Arceneaux told WLLTV.
