Wednesday afternoon, a fire erupted in an Indianapolis home. At the time, 13-year-old Nick Lamb, who is deaf, was sleeping inside.
The 13-year-old boy was excited Wednesday, because he was finally old enough to stay home alone. However, the day didn’t go as planned. He usually wears hearing aids but didn’t have them in as he napped, so he didn’t hear the home’s smoke alarms
As the fire grew, Lamb’s 2-year-old pit bull named Ace licked his face, waking him up to a room full of smoke.
“My dog licked my face and woke me up,” Lamb said. “I woke up and the entire house was covered with smoke and we ran out in the backyard.”
Ace and the boy both made it outside safely. Now Ace is being hailed as a hero. And rightly so. This dog deserves the biggest steak out there!
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
