Report: Dog may have saved family
A dog may be the reason a family escaped from a fire that consumed their Fort Washington home, ABC 7 reports.
A neighbor told ABC 7 that her dog alerted her that the neighbor's home was engulfed in flames. The dog owner then banged on the family's door and the residents fled the home, according to ABC 7.
"I went and banged on their door and told them that the house was on fire," the neighbor told ABC 7. "And then the neighbor across the street came over, knocked on their door, and they rushed out of the house and went across the street. I'm just glad the dog was pacing like she was."
Authorities said a firefighter suffered a neck burn in the fire, according to ABC 7. The home is in the 7200 block of Lavonda Court. ABC 7 has video of the fire:
