Dog saves blind man from house fire

Dog saves owner from fire

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.
