Dog Credited With Saving Teen From Fire
The Associated Press

FORT MEYERS, Fla. — A pit bull who was recently adopted by a family after wondering onto a construction site may have saved a teen girl from a house fire on Friday.



Jerrica Seals, 17, was already safely out of the house by the time firefighters arrived, the News-Press of Fort Meyers reported.

“She called me screaming,” said Leticia Vega, 36, the sister of Seals’ boyfriend Javier Garcia, 23, who owns the home. “She said the dog woke her up barking, jumped on the bed and bit her on the leg.”

Seals was taken to the hospital for a checkup, but Garcia said she was going to be fine.
