|

It’s the dramatic moment a thoughtful neighbor awakens a sleeping family of six whose house was on fire.

Nicole Salgado, her husband David and their four children were sleeping at their home in Avondale, Arizona on New Years Day when part of their property was set on fire.

Footage from a Ring doorbell camera shows worried neighbor Carolyn Palisch in her dressing gown running to the front door and knocking on it to wake the family.

Carol can be heard shouting “Get out” as she continues to knock on the door and ring the doorbell as a flame spreads over one of the walls in the background.

The family then opens the door as Carolyn informs them that there is a fire and that they must “get out and move”.

The video then shows the four children and their mother running off the property as Carol reassures them that they can go to her house.

In the TikTok video, Nicole explained that the firefighters said if they hadn’t left when they did, they wouldn’t have come out alive.

The family lost everything in the fire and said it was a day that “changed their lives forever”.

The fire is said to have started in the attic, but no cause has been determined. An investigation has been opened.

Neighbor Carolyn told Fox 32 Chicago: “I didn’t know how many kids were inside and woke them up anyway and woke them up and didn’t scream ‘fire’ because I didn’t. didn’t want to scare them. ‘

In a second video posted the day after the incident, Nicole takes video of the damaged interior of the house which has blackened marks all over and smoke is still visible.

She added that just after the family left, the roof of the property collapsed and showed the roof materials strewn on the ground.

She also explained how she ran back into the house after she left to help her husband who was bringing out their two dogs and a bearded dragon.

She added: “We have lost everything. We lost a car. We both work in the medical field and I’m a student and we have four kids and we’re just rebuilding and grateful to be alive.

“We are fine, the children are of course a little traumatized but they are resilient and strong children. We lost our house, our only car was destroyed in the fire, and most of our belongings were damaged but we have our lives and for that we have to thank Carol!

“Everything can be replaced but our lives cannot be and every day we only wake up grateful! Thanks to each of you. We are starting from scratch but everything will be fine! ‘
