POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

The Poplar Bluff, Missouri fire chief and mayor honored a six-year-old boy on Thursday, Oct. 23 for recently saving the lives of his family during a house fire.

Hunter Schmidt reportedly saw smoke coming from a wall one Friday evening and awoke the adult of the house, who got the rest of the children out of the building.

Poplar Bluff Fire Chief Ralph Stucker and Hunter's family attributed his quick thinking to an emergency presentation the boy was previously given during fire prevention week at the Early Childhood Center, according to the "Daily American Republic."
