Parrot Saves House And Family

Posted: Updated:

One Florida family's feathery friend's midnight squawking saves them when a fire breaks out.

They call him Famous Pearly. They say he likes to talk and squawk loudly all the time. However, this sometimes annoying trait came in handy earlier this week when all that noise woke the owners up.

"The bird sounded as if it was in fear for its life," recalled Dave Jane Niesel. "It was a really desperate scream…I think it knew that something was really, really wrong."

They came downstairs to see that their laundry room was on fire!

"When I came out, there was smoke from the laundry room," said Laura Jane Niesel.

They were able to get everyone, especially Pearly, out of the home safely. Pearly even gave them enough time to keep the flames from destroying the entire home. Firefighters were able to contain the flames to only the laundry room.

"My family never really liked [Pearly], but they might see him in a different view now," said reflected Laura.
