Three members of a northwest suburban family credit their dog with saving them when their house caught fire.

The fire broke out just after 3 a.m., while the Wacker family was asleep. But the Daily Herald reports Bo the yellow Labrador started barking. He alerted Jim Wacker, who then made sure the rest of his family got out safely.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
