BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A family dog is to thank for awakening a Vermont family of three to a fire in their apartment.

The American Red Cross says it believes there were no smoke detectors or fire extinguishers in their apartment in Sharon. The fire broke out Thursday night.

The family of three, including an infant, escaped the fire with only the clothing they were wearing.

Red Cross volunteers provided them with assistance.
