ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – An Albuquerque family is safe thanks in part, to their dog. Firefighters say flames broke out in the home near Montgomery and Wyoming around 7:00 Thursday morning.
Responders say the fire started in the family’s bathroom, and they quickly quarantined the area and extinguished the flames. They were able to get there in time because of the family’s first responder, their rescue dog.
Firefighters say the dog smelled smoke and woke the family up.
The bathroom is damaged but the family is not being displaced. Firefighters say it was an electrical fire.
