(iWIDK by Daniel Kiely) - This family’s dog is a Brick House.
The Horne family of Modesto, California may have their dog Brick to thank for saving their lives after the dog woke them during the night as their house went up in flames.
Daily Mail reports that Brick began to whine and jump on beds when the fire started, waking Jessica Horne, her father and six-year-old son, all of whom escaped the blaze without harm.
The family did have one loss – another dog, Buddy, who did not escape.
The Horne’s home is equipped with fire alarms, but they had been disconnected while the house was being redecorated.
