Barking Dog Alerts Former Marine to House Fire


(POCATELLO, ID) – A barking dog alerted a Pocatello man that his house was on fire early Thursday.   Anthony Targos says his girlfriend’s dog “Stella” woke him up when flames were only a few feet from his bed. The fire started in a rental property on the 400-block of Fillmore at around 6:30 a.m. Targos and two roommates, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan together as U.S. Marines, had lived in the home for almost two years. The fire destroyed the back of the house and a wooden deck. An investigation is ongoing.
