Sizlah the Hungarian vizsla hailed 'hero' dog for alerting owners to Melbourne house

A loyal pooch has been hailed a hero for alerting her sleeping owners to a house fire in Melbourne's east.

Firefighters said a discarded cigarette set both the back fence and deck alight at the Caulfield North house in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Sizlah the Hungarian vizsla spent an hour scratching on the bedroom door trying to rouse her owners to alert them to the danger.

"Initially [the occupants] told the dog to go to sleep," the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) said in a statement.

When they eventually got up to see what was going on, the smoke alarm went off.

Fire crews arrived about 4:00am and managed to put the blaze out before it spread through the house.

"While the dog has been deemed the hero, the working smoke alarm was a terrific back-up for the initial canine warning device that had been ignored," the MFB said.
