The idea of rushing into a blazing house to save an animal is a terrifying one, but is one that a San Jose man had to face this last Friday night after a fire broke out in his home.
In the video below shot by YouTube poster Ramin Zarnegar, the man, realizing his dog is inside, whips open the garage door and runs in to find his pet. Luckily, he re-emerges 20 seconds later, dog in his arms, before the fire roars bigger.
Firefighters arrived minutes later.
