A dog named Lucifer has saved a Hutchinson man from an early morning house fire.

Larry Moore was asleep in his home when his dog woke him about 2:15 a.m. Wednesday. Fire Battalion Chief Jeremy Unruh says Moore, Lucifer and another dog, named Angel, made it out safely. But Unruh says Moore returned at least twice to the home to retrieve items and had to be treated for smoke inhalation.

Moore's neighbor, Clarissa Swenson, described Lucifer, whose nickname is Lucy, as an "old mutt" who Moore and his late wife have owned for many years. Swenson says, "Lucy awoke him from a dead sleep." She described Moore as, "so fortunate."

The cause of the fire was ruled as electrical, with "multiple improper extensions cords."
