Grandson Brings Life Saving Warning - Sky Arnold

Linda Johnson, 71,  gets emotional just talking about what's left of her home.

Christmas Eve morning a fire gutted the mobile home.

 "I've lived in that house for 51 years and I gotta start all over again," said Johnson.  "Oh Lord it was devastating."

Johnson lost all her furniture and clothes and she believes she would've lost her life too if it wasn't for her grandson.

Dwayne Johnson, 15, happened to decide to come over sometime after 1 AM right as the fire was starting.

"I didn't really think it was a big fire but I still woke her up.  I didn't think the whole house would catch on fire," said Johnson.

The house did catch on fire despite Linda Johnson's son's attempts to put it out and she believes she would have slept through it without her grandson's alert.

Investigators say it's possible a heating issue started the fire.

Whatever the cause, Johnson is now thankful for the generosity of her neighborhood.

Several neighbors donated clothes and others in Ashland City chipped in money so the family can replace all the destroyed Christmas gifts.
