    It would have been really noble for the two people at home to bring the dogs out with them.

    Yes, I agree. A dog is not going to stay in a house of fire unless out is trapped by the fire or a closed door. My thoughts and prayers go out the family who I will not mention for there privacy.

    Please do not assume anything!!! My brother had
    To climb out his window onto the roof to escape the flames. He tried going back in for the dogs but there was no way in. They left the doors open & screamed for the dogs to come out. They did everything that try could!!!
