Good News: Dog Named Hero After Alerting Deaf Boy to Fire

A pit bull named Ace is being hailed as a hero for licking the face of his sleeping, deaf 13-year-old owner to alert him that the house was on fire. Indianapolis Fire Department Capt. Rita Reith says Nick Lamb was home alone and sleeping without his hearing aids when the fire began Wednesday. Ace didn’t stop licking Nick until het got up, too. That’s when he realized the house was full of smoke. Without his shoes but with Ace by his side, he covered his nose and mouth with his T-shirt darted out the back door, grabbing one of his implants along the way.
