JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Officials credit a 12-year-old Jacksonville boy for waking up his mother and four siblings after smelling smoke in their house.

The family escaped before the fire engulfed the house early Friday.

Fire department spokesman Tom Francis told the Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1BDtIeg ) the cause of the fire is under investigation by the fire marshal.

The American Red Cross is helping the mother and children, ages 1, 4, 7, 9 and 12.
