A small dog's bark could be credited for saving lives Wednesday morning.
According to firefighters, a fire broke at apartments above Harrison's Furniture Store around 2am Wednesday.
An electrical problem in a ceiling is believed to be the cause.
One apartment was destroyed.
The owners say if their small dog had not started barking, they would not have been able to wake everyone else up.
“We've been here 11 years and we hate to think your dreams are going. They had an electrical fire upstairs in an apartment. Fortunately a little dog woke the people up,” said Harrison Furniture owner Bob Harrison.
Three apartments and the furniture store sustained heavy smoke damage.
The Red Cross is helping the displaced tenants find a place to stay.
