(LINTON) - A Linton teenager not only saved a family's home from fire, he also saved their Thanksgiving.

The Greene County Daily World reports Jeromy Hunt of Linton noticed smoke coming out of a neighbor's garage on Thanksgiving Day, and then ran to the home and alerted the family who was, at the time, sitting down for a big Turkey Day dinner.

The unsuspecting family was able to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher, saving the house and the holiday.

The paper says the fire started from a faulty wire in an outlet that was just put in the day before thanksgiving.
