An early morning fire Friday completely destroyed the Yellow Creek two-story home of Gregory and Ryca Taylor.

There was a hero at the fire scene, the family dog Fred.

Fred awakened Ryka Taylor about 5 a.m. as flames were sweeping through the house. "If it hadn't been for Fred, I might not have made it out," she said. Gregory Taylor was working.
