Pet dog alerts family to fire
A BARKING pet dog alerted a family after someone set fire to a pram on the veranda of their Melbourne home. The dog’s barking woke the family sleeping in the Flemington home around 1.30am ( AEDT) yesterday. The three boys aged 4, 9 and 10 were led out of their home by their parents. Police say someone attempted to light a fire at the bottom of the front mesh door, before setting alight the pram on the front veranda. The family, with the help of neighbours, put the fire out before the fire brigade arrived.
