Firefighters say to make a map of your home with all doors and windows, make sure the windows can open, and practice the plan a few times a year. They say a plan is important because it could save a life.
"We would like to respond within five minutes. A lot of times a lot sooner. But one minute, 30 seconds is a lot. So if families have a plan together and they`re good at it and they know what they`re doing, they could be out of their house within seconds," said firefighter Trent Johnson.
Firefighters also say to have a meeting place once you escape from your home.
