FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Fort Myers dog has been recognized after he, and his owner, helped save a family from a house fire.
Iona-McGregor Fire Chief Seth Comer presented Noaa and Autumn Earle with two Citizen Lifesaving Awards during a ceremony last night.
It was in the early hours on the Fourth of July, when Noaa alerted his owner that something was happening. That was when Autumn noticed her neighbors house was on fire. She ran over and was able to get inside to alert the family and help them, and their dog, escape to safety.
Due their heroic actions, Noaa and Autumn were nominated for the Citizen Lifesaving Award by the responding A-Shift Battalion Chief Jason Martin.
They were joined at the ceremony by their grateful neighbors, where Noaa even received a brand-new patriotic bandana with “Noaa the Hero!” written on it.
