Child awakens family to overnight fire

A little girl's quick thinking may have saved the lives of her family members during an early Friday morning fire.

The fire broke out in the dryer of their home on Monida Court, off Pimlico Parkway, in Lexington.

Little McKenzie Florence woke up to use the restroom, noticed the fire and went to wake up her mom.

The laundry room of the house has extensive damage with heavy smoke damage throughout the home.

Two pets survived, but one cat died.
