Puppy Saves Couple from Fire

A puppy named Toby, a pit-bull lab mix, saved his owner, Jeremy Aldrich and his girlfriend from a fire.

Given as a Christmas present to the girlfriend, Toby started barking about 5 a.m. Thursday, and he would not stop. Aldrich gotten out of bed to see what the commotion was about; that's when he saw the fire's glow that soon burst into flames at the back of the house.

 KCCI reports the couple was able to escape uninjured and no injuries were reported among the firefighters on the scene.

 Fire investigators said the flames started because a ceramic fire pit had been used on a wooden deck the night before. The heat from the bottom of the pit ignited the wood.

 Aldrich stated he used the pit many time in past and even poured water on the fire pit before he went to bed.

 The house sustained extensive water and smoke damage.
