Dog led police to the burning house after owner told him: 'Buddy, go get help!'
Police say Buddy and his owner, 23-year-old Ben Heinrichs, were in the family workshop on the Caswell Lakes property when a heater ignited chemicals.
Heinrichs, who sustained minor flash burns on his face, dashed out as the fire grew. He then told Buddy "we need to get help."
The dog took off and eventually found a police responding to a call about the fire. Buddy led the officer through winding back roads to the house and the police guided firefighters to the scene.
The workshop was destroyed, but only some window trim on the house was damaged.
