Dog Makes Daring Leap Out Of  Window To Escape Burning Home When The House Had No People Inside

According to NBC Philadelphia, a man named Justin Steinmetz spotted a smoke-filled home in Fleetwood, Berks County while driving to work. The home had no people inside — the adults were at work and the kids were at school — and Justin frantically tried to get help.

He got another driver to call 911 and started trying to put the fire out with a hose, to no avail. Firefighters soon arrived to combat the flames. But the situation took a dramatic turn after the family’s dog, Charlie, appeared in the home’s second-story window, desperately trying to escape. The firefighters coaxed Charlie into jumping out the window, the only way to safety. In a dramatic moment captured on video by Justin, the dog makes a brave leap. While he had been charred by the fire, he made it out alive.

“He had a mouth full of smoke, lungs full of smoke, and he jumped to safety. He jumped when he needed to, that’s what matters.” Justin told NBC

The family’s other dog, and their two cats, were also found on the scene after managing to escape the home.  While it’s great the pets survived, the homeowners, identified as the Stump family, “lost everything” in the fire. A GoFundMe campaign was set up to help them get back on their feet after losing their home.

But Justin, who runs a farm and says he will be lending the family some baby goats for “goat therapy,” says the pets’ survival is a major silver lining. There are many helping for this family, they recived  got raised $40,000 to fix significantly impacted as a result of the devastating fire.

“I feel blessed that the animals got out alive, that’s the big thing,” he told NBC.

What a dramatic escape from this burning home! We’re so glad Charlie is safe now, and are sending this family our thoughts and prayers as they recover from this devastating fire. Poor dogs and they are also very smart to find a way out for themselves
