In Tampa, FL an elderly couple’s dog roused them from sleep at around 4 a.m., alerting them to a fire.

The small poodle was making a ruckus, leading owner Alice Ferrari to think he needed to go out.

Owner Alice Ferrari thought the dog needed to go outside, but when she opened the door, he ran out and right back in. She then discovered there was a fire in the ceiling of her laundry room.

Luckily, the couple and their dog escaped unharmed. However, they have a cat that is still missing, hopefully to be found safe and sound.
