Dog is a Hero for Alerting Family About Fire


A 15-YEAR-OLD dog was hailed a hero today after saving a woman and her pregnant daughter from a fire.

Rocky, a terrier, alerted Natalie Wilson, 19, to the danger by frantically scratching at her bedroom door.

Miss Wilson, who is six months pregnant, was woken up by the pooch and discovered her home in Huyton, Merseyside, was on fire.

She was then able to wake her mother Kathy Williams, 41, who was asleep in another room before calling for help.

A spokeswoman for Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service said the two women and their dog were rescued unharmed from an upstairs bedroom window at around 1.30 this morning.

Praising Rocky she added: “It seems he was a real hero.”

An investigation has now been launched into the cause of the fire, which is being treated as suspicious.
