    A young boy is being hailed a hero after he saved his mother from a house fire in New Jersey.

    Bradley, 7, spotted the flames outside his bedroom window and immediately screamed “fire” to wake his mother up. They then both escaped from the home unharmed.

    “I think it’s amazing,” said Bradley’s grandmother Deb Beloin. “He’s a hero. If it wasn’t for him I don’t know what would have happened.”

    The fire started in Bradley Bianchino’s home on Meadow Creek Drive in Dennis Township early Tuesday morning. 

    Bradley says the power of prayer allowed him to save his mother. 

    “I prayed right before I went to bed,” he said. “Just somehow I must’ve woke up. I got lucky because I prayed.”

    The fire caused extensive damage to the home. A GoFundMe page was set up to help with repair costs. 

    Officials continue to investigate the cause of the fire.
