Forget about Chucky. Now, it seems, dolls have decided to use their powers for good.

Christian Deason of Tennessee awoke at 3:30 a.m. on October 24 when an infant doll she was caring for as part of a school assignment began to cry. Deason realized at that moment that her house was being consumed by a raging fire.

After the doll woke the 17-year-old, she quickly roused her mother and her mother's boyfriend, and all three fled the house. Their home was destroyed, but, thanks to the simulation doll, the family escaped the blaze unscathed.
