WINDHAM, N.H. (WCAX) - A New Hampshire man says his security camera saved his family from a fire.

Tuesday night, James, who did not want to give his last name, was at work when he got a security notification on his Blink alarm.

He saw a fire in his living room, while the rest of his family was asleep in their rooms.

Windham Fire Chief Thomas McPherson says thanks to James and the security camera, a potential tragedy was avoided.

“It’s not the firefighters that were the heroes,” McPherson said. “It was the husband.”

The family moved into the home less than a month ago and did not know the smoke alarms weren’t working.
