It was 4:45 a.m. when a call came in to report a burning home in Dana Point, Calif. A fire rescue unit was dispatched to the scene and when firefighters arrived, they found a one-story home engulfed in flames.

According to Capt. Steve Concialdi with the Orange County Fire Authority, it took about 30 minutes to control the fire. Coco was trapped inside the home but hero rescuers were able to find him just in time. No one else was inside the home.

The fire caused property damages worth $400,000. Fortunately, no lives were lost.

Coco was uninjured and he was later seen walking in front of a neighbor’s house.
