After getting their daughter out of the house, his wife went into the home again to get their son. He had been fast asleep while his bedroom was full of smoke. “The fire was right outside his wall,” Walker said. “He wasn’t awake because he sleeps covered with his blanket.”
Walker stepped inside the house to get Ralph, who was in his kennel, and the family’s two miniature pigs.
The hero, Ralph, made it out alive. One of the pigs also got out but the other, Pearl, died.
The home has suffered heavy fire damage and most of the family’s belongings have perished. But, they are thankful for the furry member of the family.
“Without Ralph, I don’t think we would have made it,″ Walker said.
