ILLINOIS — A pet pig named Lucky is being hailed a hero after he woke his family as their home was burning.

Officials responded to the trailer fire Sunday.

The homeowner told crews she and her grandkids were awakened by their family pig and escaped through a bedroom window, according to WFIE.

The Farler family has had him since February.

They say the pig started squealing and running back and forth from the bed to the door, sometimes hitting his sleeping owner.

When she sat up to see what was wrong with him, she noticed the smoke.

She was able to get her two grandchildren out before a neighbor helped her and Lucky get out of the house.

The home is a total loss, but the family is counting their blessings.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Anyone looking to help out Lucky and the Farler family can reach them at 618-499-8891.
