WELLINGTON, Kan. (AP) - A Wellington family says their dog saved them from a house fire.

James Mceachern says his dog, Kratos, woke the family up when their house caught fire early Friday.

He told KWCH-TV (https://j.mp/2gAw3pS ) Kratos is normally quiet but came to his bedroom door “and really started raising Cane so I got up to see what was going on.”

Mceachern says he got up and noticed there was fire coming out the attic vent. He then got his wife, son and two dogs out of the home and called 911.

He says he believes without the dog’s vigilance “the smoke would have got us before the fire did.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
