A Napoleon woman is with­out a home after a fire early Tues­day morn­ing, but her life may have been saved by her dog.

Flames were vis­i­ble at 12:20am Tues­day when crews from Napoleon Fire Depart­ment arrived at the Erie Street home of Car­olyn Miller.

Miller and her dog, Casper, were inside the home when the fire started and made it safely out­side after Casper’s bark­ing alerted Miller to the blaze.

The fire, accord­ing to inves­ti­ga­tors, appar­ently began in the garage and then spread to the home and its attic.

The home and garage were destroyed in the fire which caused an esti­mated $100,000 in dam­age. A neighbor’s fence was also dam­aged by the flames. The exact cause of the fire is under investigation.
