City Fire Department Battalion Chief Dennis Maxwell says the boy's mother told firefighters she thought he was still inside the two-story house when they arrived Sunday evening. Maxwell says crews spotted the boy hiding inside an entertainment center cabinet on the first floor and brought him outside.
