A family in Maine is safe and sound thanks to their pet dog. The owners of a house in Waterville were sound asleep in their living room when a fire started. Luckily, their pooch woke up, smelled the smoke and woke the two of them up, too.
The homeowners tried to extinguish the flames themselves, but the fire had gotten too big, so they called the Waterville Fire Department for help. While the house sustained extensive damage, the hero dog made sure everyone inside the house escaped without injury.
