SEATAC, Wash. -- Man's best friend helped save a life early Thursday morning as a dog helped alert a homeowner that his house was on fire in SeaTac.

The fire started just after 3 a.m. in the 2600 block of S. 138th St. The man and his dog escaped safely from the fire, which burned through most of the roof.

Puget Sound Fire said crews fought the fire defensively during the initial attack, but have since extinguished it.

Red Cross will assist the man and his dog, and investigators will look into the cause.
