A dog may have saved a sleeping Santa Ana family from a house fire Tuesday morning, waking them with loud barking around 2 a.m.

The family then noticed the small fire that was contained to one room.

They ran out but quickly realized the dog was still inside. The husband ran back in and rescued the dog.

The man also grabbed a sprinkler, threw it in the house and turned on the water.

Firefighters knocked down the fire in a short amount of time.

Investigators are looking into a cause, and say it appears the smoke detector was not working.
