This was the first summer 13-year-old Nick Lamb was allowed to stay home alone. On Wednesday he was taking a nap when a deadly fire began inside his house. Nick told Kare11, "I couldn't hear anything because I had my cochlear implants off. My dog Ace smelled it. I just wanted to get out."

The 2-year-old pit bull named Ace licked Nick's face in order to wake him up and then the pair were able to escape out the back of the house. The teenager quickly called 911 and when firefighters arrived flames were shooting out of the garage. The fire caused $175,000 in damage, but luckily no one was harmed.

We're glad everyone is OK!
