Jackie Bonasera of Long Island, New York has a pet pit bull named Cain. (Jackie's age wasn't given . . . but she looks like she's in her 40s.)
On Friday, Jackie was upstairs drying her hair, when she heard Cain barking. Since he almost NEVER barks, Jackie knew something was wrong, and went downstairs to check it out.
And she found flames spreading from a fire in her garage to the rest of the house.
Jackie got out of the house quickly . . . but she noticed that Cain hadn't come out with her. So she put her robe over her face to protect herself from smoke . . . and went back IN to get HIM.
Jackie said, quote, "He saved my life . . . I had to save his." Both of them got back out without being injured. They aren't sure how the fire started, but it took 70 firefighters to put it out.
