ODESSA, Texas – A blind man was rescued after a fire started in his home – but it wasn’t a fire alarm that woke him up – it was his dog.
A towel accidentally left on the stove caused a fire around 4 a.m. Saturday at Charles Kennedy’s home in Odessa, Texas.
Kennedy is legally blind and doesn’t have a smoke alarm. His dog Jack woke him up, licking his face.
Kennedy quickly called 911 and officers were dispatched to his home, helping him in the situation.
One-year-old Jack never left Kennedy’s side – even as he was put on a stretcher.
