Dog saves family from fire

The Chicago Tribune has an article describing the efforts of a dog in alerting the family to a fire in their home:

A mother and her two kids escaped their burning home in Plainfield after the family dog– Payton – alerted them to the fire about 11:45 p.m. Thursday.

Fire crews were dispatched to the home in the 16000 block of South River Road and found heavy fire coming out of the walk-out basement in the back, Stratton said.

“The whole back of the house, heavy wind blowing into it, blew it right into the structure.”
