Jackie Bonasera stated that she was drying her hair in an upstairs bathroom when she suddenly heard Cain barking really loud. Without knowing at that time, he was trying to warn her about the danger, as the fire was spreading all over her house.
The dog didn’t bark often, so she decided to go downstairs and check what’s happening. At that moment, she saw the flames on the side of her garage spreading from the front to the back of the home.
Luckily, thanks to Cain’s barks, she had enough time to escape.
“I ran out of the house and my neighbors came running over, and then I thought about the dog – I’m like, ‘He saved my life, I have to save him,'” Bonasera said, according to NBC News. “So I just put my robe over my face and I ran back in and I grabbed the dog and then I stood out here and I watched my house burn.”
Bonasera said she truly believes she wouldn’t have had enough time to escape the fire if Cain would not alert her.
Her daughter Alexus Stallworth was outside the house when the fire broke out and captured a video of the blaze on her cell phone camera. More than 70 firefighters were needed to extinguish it!
She said about Cain: “He’s definitely the town hero. He’s a pit bull, too. They have such bad reps, but he’s such a good boy.” We totally agree!
