Fort Worth honored a 12-year-old girl and a few firefighters for saving her family during a carbon monoxide crisis.

Jeziyah Parker called 911 in Spring when her mom began to feel sick.

She was ready to open the entryway for firefighters before she fell.

Firefighters tracked down her mom and four other children unconscious inside their home.

They put themselves in danger to get the family out securely.

"I knew that they only had minutes. So, we didn’t have time to return to the truck to put our gear back on. They wouldn't have lasted that long," said Lt. Robby Leon-Guerrero with the Fort Worth Fire Department.

During Tuesday's city council meeting, the Fort Worth fire chief presented an award to Jeziyah.

She and five other relatives were hospitalized due to the carbon monoxide. If she hadn't called for help, things might have been a ton more regrettable.

The committee likewise gave a decree perceiving the firefighters who hurried into the home without their defensive stuff.

Five firefighters were hospitalized as a safeguard after the salvage.

Investigators said a car left running in a garage caused the home to fill up with carbon monoxide that night.
