Five year old is an honorary junior fire fighter

LAGRANGE, GA (CBS46) -

Five year old Truth Perdue is named an honorary Junior Fire Fighter of the Lagrange Fire Department station #1. 

Earlier this year in March, Perdue and six members of his family escaped their home during a fire. 

Nakia Bell, Perdue's Grandmother credits the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign because they installed the beeps from the smoke alarms which woke them up. 

The home was a total loss, but Nakia says "I'm thankful to the Red Cross for coming and putting in those smoke alarms. It's a blessing."
