Holt grabbed a fire extinguisher and ran to the shed.

“By the time I got down there, it was fairly out of control already,” said Holt.

Harrison quickly dialed 911 and got his sister out of the house.

“Harry has her in one arm and the phone in the other, just chatting to 911,” Holt said.

The fire destroyed the home, WMUR reported.

The family had recently practiced a fire safety drill.

“Exit drills in the home, use smoke detectors, practice it, make sure the children are familiar with it,” said Fire Chief Bud Chapman.
