DAMASCUS, OR (KPTV) -

A dog alerted people living in a Damascus home to a fire Thursday morning.

The Clackamas County Fire District says the family’s dog started barking, alerting their 13 year-old son to the fire.

The boy woke up his mom and they were able to escape.

When firefighters arrived, family members told them their dog was inside the home. Firefighters were able to get the dog out of the home a short time later.

No one was hurt.

Firefighters are still investigating a cause of the fire.
