An 11-year-old boy is expected to be nominated for a bravery award after saving his family and pet rabbit from a Melbourne house fire.

The quick-thinking boy called Triple Zero soon after the blaze broke out in his Green Street, Camberwell home, just after 8pm yesterday.

"This 11-year-old boy did a great job, and it's thanks to his home escape plan during his fire education program at primary school," the Metropolitan Fire Brigade's Brian Morrison said.
