She said: "I just suddenly saw all the fire engines coming past. My husband saw the little lad was lying on the grass on some oxygen.
"I just hope he's all right, he's a lovely, polite little lad.
"Someone said on Facebook it was a problem with the kitchen but I didn't really see any smoke."
The road was cordoned off by the fire service while the blaze was put out.
Two crews from Stockhill station were sent out, followed by a third from Highfields, in Beeston, when an update said the boy was inside the house.
Mrs Hunt added: "After they taped it off people were still trying to get past in their cars.
"They were driving up close to the tape, having a look to see if they could make it past.
"You think 'are they for real?' People are so daft."
Notts Fire and Rescue Service said the boy was taken to hospital but was not thought to have been seriously hurt.
A police spokeswoman said the cause of the fire was not thought to be suspicious.
