Authorities say a very alert dog saved a Wake County family from a fire that broke outside inside the family's home.

The fire broke out inside a farm house of Green Hope School Road around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The residents told ABC11 Eyewitness News the sound of their barking dog woke up the family. That's when they noticed a fire in the kitchen.

A couple and their two children escaped unharmed. The family's car was damaged along with the home.

The Red Cross is assisting the family.

A family pet is being credited with alerting a Cary family to a fire inside their home.
