A dog saved an Illinois family after waking them up during a fire at their home last week, according to WGN TV.

Payton woke up his owner's son, who then woke up the rest of the family and allowed them to escape.

The fire reportedly hit the backside of the home and caused as much as $400,000 in damages. The mother was reportedly sleeping near where the fire caught on.
