Fight Instincts, Save Your Life
If a fire were to erupt in your home your first instinct might be to try to save any pets who live with you, but the fire department says that instinct is wrong.
Recently in the Northwest 23rd Terrace neighborhood one family lost everything they owned when a quick moving fire destroyed all of their belongings.
But one thing the family walked away with was their lives.
Last Saturday Robert Young was awoken by a neighbor when his back porch caught fire.
Young made it out alive, but panicked when he realized both of his dogs were still inside.
Firefighters say instead of going back into a burning building yourself, you should let the people who are trained to find people and pets in emergency situations.
Getting yourself to safety, helps firefighter locate saw your pets and help make sure everyone can safely survive the blaze.
