Dog Rescues Owner from Burning Bed

Liberty came to the rescue when her owner’s laptop overheated and set his bed on fire. Without Liberty the man likely would have died from smoke inhalation.

Edward Fontaine had been working on financial spreadsheets on his laptop while in bed when he dosed off. A few hours later his laptop overheated and the mattress caught fire. The smoke detector on Fontaine’s second floor did not have a battery. Thankfully Liberty went into action to alert Fontaine. She pressed her paws against him and nuzzled him until he woke up.

Once awake he found his bed on fire and the flames starting to burn through his shirt. He quickly ran for his fire extinguisher but the second floor was too smoky for him to return to. He and Liberty safely got out of the home and waited for firefighters to arrive.

“It is very likely he would have succumbed to smoke inhalation,” said Fire Captain Tony Cunha.

When mattresses burn the fire is extremely smoky. Cunha says the bedroom had “blacked down” with smoke by the time firefighters arrived on the scene. The firefighters were able to contain the fire to the bedroom.

Fontaine is very grateful for Liberty and acknowledges that without her he doesn’t know if he would have survived. He and Liberty are now staying at his sister’s house, but Fontaine made sure to grab her favorite ball and treats before leaving.

This on top of the 2 Palestinians wounded by live rounds today, ostensibly by settlers.(I wonder if this has been orchestrated…………..)
