Dog Credited With Saving Owner From Fire

Associated Press - August 12, 2013 4:54 pm

A dog is credited with saving its owner from a northeast Kansas house fire that authorities are investigating as arson.

The fire happened before dawn Friday in Wamego. The home’s sole occupant says that after being awoken by the dog, he heard the sound of the smoke detectors. The man managed to exit through the smoke, but the dog died.

Officials from the Kansas State Fire Marshal’s Office and local fire personnel say it appears the fire started on the front porch. That’s why the fire is being investigated as an aggravated arson.

The guy did not care enought about the dog that saved his rear end to make sure it made it out of the house also is a pure disgrace. I can see why they did not print his name here.
