The flames were shooting up through the exterior decking of their escape route. If Dominic didn’t act quickly, they would have been blocked inside with no way out.
Dominic scooped up the dog and bolted through the fire. It was probably the scariest thing he’d ever done. Once they were on the other side of the flames, and had made it to safety, Dominic could finally get a good view of the danger they’d just managed to escape.
They had just gotten out of the condo barely in time. “The fire was above the treetops here,” recalled Dominic. “I’m just lucky that he woke me up because I had no idea that it’d been going on.”
Firefighters were able to put out the fire in under 30 minutes, but eight units, including Dominic’s, were gutted. These families are now without a home.
The dog, who was a stray before being taken in by Dominic, had his right front leg amputated after a car hit him. He knew what it was like to be homeless.
But thankfully, now the dog had Dominic to take care of him and make sure he was safe and cared for.
So now, Dominic needs to find a new home for him and his dog.
“It’s nice to know he’s got a good home, well at least he did, now we’re going to have to find a new one,” laughed Dominic. “I’m just glad he was there for me when I needed him.”
