Thanks to the quick thinking and bravery of two middle schoolers, three dogs were saved from a house fire. The students were alerted to the fire alarm going off in their neighbor’s home and took immediate action.
Mario Comella, 12, and Anthony Lombardi, 13, were riding their bikes past a neighbor’s house when they heard the fire alarm going off inside.
Upon hearing the fire alarm, Mario Comella and Anthony Lombardi promptly contacted the family to inform them of the situation. The family then revealed that they were not at home at the time but their three dogs were still inside the house.
As soon as the boys got the code to open the front door, they didn’t waste any time and sprang into action. When they opened the door, smoke poured out of the house, but they bravely went in to rescue the family’s three dogs, making sure they were brought to safety.
When they opened the front door, two of the dogs ran out of the house, but the third one was still inside, trapped in a crate. One of the boys bravely entered the smoke-filled home, went upstairs, and rescued the dog from the crate.
According to their assumption, the fire had started because one of the dogs accidentally turned on the stove, causing a wooden chopping board to catch fire as it was resting on one of the burners.
According to the homeowners who were grateful for the boys’ actions, “These boys are heroes. We could’ve lost everything.”
You can witness the courageous act of the two middle schoolers in the video below, captured by the family’s doorbell camera, as they rescued their three dogs from a house fire while the owners were away.
