Members of a Texas family suffering from COVID-19 are safe after their home caught fire, and they weren’t able to smell the smoke, local reports say.
They had lost their sense of smell due to the virus.
But a 17-year-old girl was able to smell the smoke, alert her three relatives and get them to safety.
Reports say the teenager did not have COVID-19.
Four people were at home when the fire broke out in Waco on Friday morning.
No one was injured.
But the fire destroyed their home.
Investigators have launched a probe to determine the cause of the blaze.
