Hot dog’s lucky house fire es­cape

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A DOG cheated death af­ter set­ting her owner’s house on fire when it jumped up at the cooker.

Daisy, a three-year-old Shih-Tzu and York­shire terrier cross, turned on the hob and nearby wash­ing caught fire.

Her owner Jenny Ex­ley, from Bolton, Lancs, went to the kitchen to find it blaz­ing and filled with smoke.

Jenny said: “I opened the door and smoke just came out.

“I couldn’t see Daisy and as I went in to see where she was, she came crawl­ing out. She was com­pletely black.

“She was a lit­tle shaken and was given oxy­gen by fire­fight­ers and is OK now. By clos­ing the door I saved it spread­ing to the rest of the house.”

Jenny, who had been shop­ping when the fire started, said that from now on she will leave Daisy sleep­ing in the hall.
