Family dog alerts residents to fire inside Beachwood home
Man's best friend saves the day for a family in Beachwood this morning after alerting the residents about a fire inside the Harpoon Street home just before 2:00 am, according to the Beachwood Volunteer Fire Department.
Beachwood and Pine Beach Fire Departments arrived on the scene and were able to quickly douse the flames within 20-minutes.
Authorities say it was a "room and contents fire" on the second floor of the home.
There are no reported injuries to anyone who resides at the home.
The fire is under investigation by the Ocean County Fire Marshals Office.
The dog alerted the residents before the smoke detectors did and is likely due for an extra treat today.
