Miraculous Rescue As Man Runs Ahead of Firefighters To Save Dog From Burning Home

Watching his home ablaze, Jose Guzman knew he was about to lose everything, so he ran back inside and risked his own life.

He didn’t want to live without his dog.

According to KUSI News, Guzman, who works in construction and as a landscaper, pushed his way through the dark smoke, to the back of the house, where his two-and-a-half year old dog, Gabbana, was leashed up and huddled in the bathroom.

Moments later, they both came running out, singed from the raging fire.

Nearby, someone caught the rescue on video.
