Dog Saves Owner's Life In Trailer Fire

A dog loses his life during a fire after saving his owner.

The fire broke out at a home on Laurie Lane in Scott County around 6:30 this morning.

Fire officials say a man was asleep on the couch when his pit bull, Trixie, started barking.

He woke up to find his trailer filled with smoke.

He made it out of the house, but Trixie did not.

Fire officials think the fire started in an electrical panel inside a bedroom.

    his dog gave her life to save his. She was not concerned for herself only him. That is true love. He probably didn't realize the dog was still in the fire.
