Hero Pit Bull Saves Deaf Teen From Devastating House Fire

An Indianapolis family is hugging the family dog, a 2-year old Pit Bull named Ace, a little closer today after he came to the rescue of his teenaged deaf human when their home caught fire.

13-year old Nick Lamb was home alone on Wednesday afternoon when the home caught fire. Nick, who is deaf, had removed his hearing aids and fallen asleep for an afternoon nap.

That’s when Ace came to the rescue. Since barking to alert the boy would not have been heard, Ace ran to Nick and licked his face, relentlessly, until  the teen woke up and smelled the burning house.

“He was thankful that Ace entered his room and licked his face until he woke up,” Indianapolis Fire Department Capt. Rita Reith said in a news release. “The boy quickly covered his nose and mouth with his T-shirt and exited the rear of the house.”

While the Lamb home is a complete loss, everyone inside at the time of the fire – Nick, Ace, and a black cat named Pixie – are alive thanks to the actions of one heroic dog.
