Good Samaritans Rush Into Burning Home To Save Dog

Here's another ray of hope for humanity -

A pair of good Samaritans ran into a burning home in New Jersey to save a dog. When a home in Middletown, New Jersey, caught fire, several passersby stopped to see what they could do to help. One of those people was an off-duty firefighter.

He says he was driving down the road when the car in front of him stopped in the middle of the road and someone from the car ran toward a nearby house. “I was like, 'What is this dude doing?,'” he recalls. “Then I looked and saw a house was on fire." He parked and ran up the home’s front steps and into the house.

Once he was in the house, he saw a teenage boy already inside, carrying a dog in a crate toward the door. "I ran to help him. I was like, 'Come on, let's do this.'" The two men carried the dog outside and then he went back in and closed all of the home’s interior doors to prevent the fire from spreading. Firefighters arrived a few minutes later and were able to contain the fire. And although several firefighters had to be treated for heat exhaustion, no one was hurt in the fire, including the lucky dog.
