BRICEVILLE — A dog with a habit of urinating on a power strip may have sparked a blaze that burned down a Briceville area home Monday night, according to an Anderson County Sheriff's Department report.

But the dog may also have saved his owner's life because the animal "kept coming to the bed to wake him up," according to Sgt. David Davis's report.

Tenant Jacob Davis said when he got out of bed, he saw black smoke coming from behind a couch.
