Bedroom fire...help please

So about an hour ago I woke up and my bedroom was completely filled with smoke. I have a little space heater in there for extra warmth and it caught a pillow on fire. Idk how long it was on fire for but my whole house is filled with smoke. My baby sleeps in my room so she was breathing the smoke in while she was sleeping. Do I have to take her in and get looked at or what?

Take her in. Even though she's breathing smoke inhalation is very dangerous. Better safe than sorry.

I took her in and he said there's no soot in her airways :) but he didn't check her blood for toxins which makes me mad
