Tyler boy who saved mother's life awarded for his bravery

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A young boy who saved the life of his family is being honored for his bravery this morning.

The Tyler Fire Department will present an Award of Appreciation to 8-year-old, LaKeith Coble, at 9:00 this morning at Peete Elementary School Cafeteria, at 1511 W. Bellwood Road in Tyler.

LaKeith saved his mother's life when he woke her up to let her know their home was on fire, early Sunday morning.

The home did not have smoke detectors so LaKeith's quick actions saved the life of his family.

The Tyler Fire Department is very proud of the brave actions exhibited by LaKeith Coble and encourages everyone to make certain they have working smoke detectors in their homes.
