Firefighters were called out to a fire at a Burnley house after a pan had been left unattended on the cooker.
The occupier of the property in Holcombe Drive had gone out for the evening but fortunately a neighbour heard the smoke alarm going off at 7-45pm on Friday.
A dog was heard in the kitchen barking and after firefighters rescued the canine they switched off the cooker and extinguished the blaze.
The dog was taken outside and made a full recovery.
Breathing apparatus and a ventilation unit was used to clear the property of smoke.
The occupier returned and was given fire safety advice.
