The fire at a Beltsville, MD home started on Tuesday morning while the Aquilar family were sleeping. Their 6-year-old Doberman, Monster, was outside when the fire broke out and started barking uncontrollably and pouncing on a sliding glass door waking the family up.
The house was equipped with smoke alarms but Monster’s barking woke them up before the first one went off, giving them extra time to get out safely.
Here’s a report from myfoxdc.com.

Way to go Monster, you are our dog hero of the day.
