A family of pet lovers in Modesto, California are extremely grateful to a pet dog after he saved them from their burning home.

The Horne family were fast asleep in their beds when an electrical fire started in their garage.

Fortunately for Jessica Horne, her father and six-year-old son, the families pet pouch Brick alerted them to the fire.

Once Brick became aware of the smoke, he started to whine and bark loudly, plus he started jumping on Jessica’s father’s bed.

Initially Jessica’s father though the fire in the backyard, but once they realized it was in the garage and spreading they rushed out of the burning building.

The house had been fitted with fire alarms, but the family say they had taken down because they were in the process of redecorating.

The family home was very badly damaged by the fire, but Jessica Horne says she is grateful that they made it out alive.

‘He’s definitely considered our hero’ said Horne of Brick. Unfortunately the family’s other dog Buddy didn’t make it.

The Red Cross are currently helping to rehouse the Hornes.
