    As ABC reports, by the time the firefighters arrived, the house on Salstone Street at Kangaroo Point in Australia was already "engulfed in flames". The owner, Anton, and his parrot, Eric, thankfully, came out of there alive. The reason for that is our newest hero - Eric. According to Cam Thomas, the QFES Acting Inspector on the scene, the parrot squawked "Anton! Anton!" to warn his owner that something was really wrong.

    "I heard a bang and Eric — my parrot — he started to yell so I woke up and I smelled a bit of smoke," said Anton. "I grabbed Eric, opened the door and looked to the back of the house and saw some flames. And so I've grabbed my bag and took off and bolted downstairs."

    He added that he's in shock but feeling fine and that "Everything's alright so long as I have myself and the bird." That's a man with some set priorities who loves his bird more than any material things he had in that house, and we are happy and thankful that both of them came out of that fire alive and well. And yes, we have taken it upon ourselves to hand Eric a virtual metal of honor for his heroism. Good job, Eric.
