Family Dog Dies Saving Family from Burning Newaygo Co. Home

A family dog saved its owners from their burning Newaygo County home, but died in the process. We're told strong winds played a big role whipping up the flames that destroyed the 24th Street home in Fremont. The family was asleep when the fire started around midnight, but made it out safely thanks to their dog. It took three departments more than four hours to put out the fire and clear the scene. The house is a total loss.
