A Good Samaritan in a Parker neighborhood spotted a house on fire and took action.
The homeowner said the passerby opened the family's door on Brookdale Lane just after midnight Monday and shouted for them to get out.
Three people did.
South Metro Fire Rescue got the fire out and saved the family's cat.
