Dog saves boy from fire by biting foot
Mon Jan 7, 9:56 PM ET

PORTAGE, Ind. - A black Labrador that bit a 13-year-old boy's foot repeatedly, waking him up, is being credited with saving the boy and two of his friends from a house fire. Christopher Peebles said he woke up Friday morning to feel his dog Laney biting his foot repeatedly in the basement of his family's home, where he and two friends had spent the night.

  印第安纳州,PORTAGE--一起民宅火灾中为叫醒主人--一位13岁男孩--再三咬主人脚的一条黑色纽芬兰猎犬因为救了这位男孩和他两位朋友的性命而受到了表彰。男孩Christopher Peebles说,上周五早上醒来发现自己名为Laney的狗正在反复咬他的脚。当时他和他的两位朋友还在他家地下室睡觉。

"I thought she had to go to the bathroom, but she never bites me," Peebles said Friday.

He and his friends walked upstairs with Laney and noticed smoke everywhere in the home.

"We came up the stairs and thought it was a dream, but it was cold when we opened the door — then we knew it wasn't a dream," Pebbles said.




Firefighters arrived about 10 a.m. and found the home's garage and eaves on fire. Assistant Fire Chief Mike Bucy said the damage was mostly in the attached one-car garage of the ranch home.

Fire Chief Bill Lundy said the fire, which caused an estimated $25,000 in damage to the home, appeared to have started in an electrical heating unit in the garage.

Peebles' parents, Dave and Vicky Peebles, were both at work at the time of the fire. They said they were relieved that their son and his friends were not injured.

消防员于上午10点左右赶到现场。原来是车库和屋檐着了火。助理消防队长 Mike Bucy称大部分的损害在房子附属的一间单车车库里。

消防队长Bill Lundy称引起火灾的似乎是车库里的一个电加热装置。火灾带来的损失估计在2.5万美元。

Peebles的父母Dave 和Vicky Peebles在火灾发生时都在上班。 两人说还好儿子及他的朋友们都没受伤。

Dave Peebles said that one point after Laney had ushered Christopher and his friends out of the house the dog ran back inside and wouldn't come out until he went in to get her.

Peebles said his son and the dog were "real close."

"She's always been very protective of him," Vicky Peebles said of Laney

Dave Peebles称当Laney把Christopher和他的朋友们领出房子后,自己又跑进屋内,知道Christopher再次把她带出房子。


Vicky Peebles说道Laney时讲:”她一直很会保护着他“
