The Audubon fire chief is calling a 17-year-old boy a hero for getting his family out of a burning mobile home early Saturday morning.


"He was brave enough to go back in and get his family out of the house -- it was fully engulfed in 20 minutes," said Audubon Fire Chief Darcy Savig.

Seventeen-year-old Devin Campbell said he woke up about 3:30 a.m. Saturday, coughing on smoke.
