Residents at the Little Bay Apartment Complex in Rockport are calling a dog their hero.

A fire broke out at the complex Sunday morning, leaving two families homeless. The blaze was thought to be caused by a lit cigarette, and it could have been much worse.

The residents were asleep when the fire broke out, but everyone was able to escape unharmed, all thinks to a Siberian Husky.
