Dog Saves Trinidad Man From Burning Building, Dies
A man said his dog rescued him from his burning house in Trinidad then died after it ran back into the building, the Associated Press reported via the L.A. Times.
Anderson Marcano, the dog's owner, was quoted in the Trinidad & Tobago Express newspaper as saying his dog woke him in the middle of the night by barking and tugging his pants. Marcano said he smelled smoke and realized his house was on fire.
The story did not say why the dog ran back in. Marcano said nobody else was in the house.
On Wednesday, firefighters found the remains of the dog, "Rebel," as well as the body of the family's pet parrot, he said.
