A San Mateo County father is being hailed as a hero for getting his family out of their burning house.

The man was getting ready for work when he heard his car alarm go off. He went outside to investigate and saw his SUV engulfed in flames, and that the fire had already spread to the garage.

He ran back inside the house and woke up his family. His wife and all nine kids were able to escape unharmed.

Fire investigators still have not determined what caused the vehicle to catch fire.
