I’m at the scene of a miraculous rescue that occurred earlier today involving a fire, a 3-month-old baby, and the baby’s dog, Lucky. Uh, the fire broke out at the three-story building behind me. Uh, unfortunately, we’re not able to get any closer because the possibility of an explosion. Uh, however, witnesses say that they noticed fire coming from the building earlier this morning.
It was believed that everyone had been evacuated to safety; however, one of the residents, Susan O’Connor, when she had returned and noticed the fire, she panicked, realizing that her 3-month-old baby was still inside. However, witnesses report seeing the dog, uh, the family dog, pulling the baby to safety by, uh, the baby’s clothes. Fortunately, everyone is reported fine. The baby was taken to the hospital, uh, as well as the dog, but we’re happy to say that at this time, it looks like everyone, uh, will be fine. This is Channel 13 News.
