Smoky the Chihuahua rescued from burning house

Smoky the Chihuahua rescued from burning house

Tampa, Florida - On Saturday, firefighters searched a burning  home in Tampa looking for a Chihuahua named Smoky that was trapped inside.

When crews arrived at 1213 East Emma Street, they saw smoke pouring from the house. An investigator with the Tampa Fire Marshals Office says Herman Brown and his wife, who've lived there for the past 20 years, were doing laundry. They left the house and left the dryer going.

Neighbors down the street, Vender Moore and his friend Curtis Harris, heard a beeping sound and went outside to investigate. They heard the Brown's smoke alarm going off, saw smoke and called 9-1-1 to respond before using a garden hose to try to put out the flames.
