Dog saves owner from fire, dies trying to rescue cat

ELKHART LAKE, Wisconsin (AP) -- After a disabled woman's cat started a house fire, her specially trained dog came to the rescue, then died trying unsuccessfully to rescue the cat.

Jamie Hanson said her 13-year-old dog Jesse brought her artificial leg and a phone she used to call 911.

"She got me outside and then she heard the cat upstairs and she went up there to get the cat, and she wouldn't come back to me," Hanson, 49, said at a news conference Monday at Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center, where she was being treated for her injuries.

She received third-degree arm burns in the fire Sunday night at her home in Rhine, south of Elkhart Lake. Both pets died.

Oh man. What an amazing boy. I'm sure that she was lucky to have had him on a number of occasions. I hope that she is able to find a dog to help her in those ways.

Good Job, Jesse! Make sure when you get to heaven, you whoop that cat's bootie!
