"She woke me up. I opened my eyes. The whole room was filled with smoke. She got everybody up. She saved the day," said John Drouin.
Peanut is a veteran service dog. She usually alerts Drouin to seizures.Ten fire departments battled the blaze. Buildings on both sides of the apartment building suffered water damage.The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
