In Scotts Valley, California, a family’s Ring doorbell and a jogger are being credited with saving the family pets from a house fire. The family had been out of town when a Good Samaritan spotted smoke coming out of the top floor of the home and acted quickly.

According to Channel12News, Courtney Polito, the homeowner saw a jogger running back and forth pressing on their doorbell.

“Hello, do you see there’s smoke coming out of the top of your house?”

Good Samaritan

Courtney heard the smoke alarms in her house blaring and asked the man to go into her house to rescue her two dachshunds, a rabbit and a cat. After she gave him the code to enter, the mystery man saved them. Had he not warned her, Courtney would have lost her pets and likely her home.

The fire department arrived, and told Courtney had another ten minutes gone by, her house would have gone up in flames, and it was because of this brave anonymous person that her pets and her home were saved. Fortunately, the fire at the time was still contained in the garage. Most of the damage was confined to the garage, their vehicle and some personal property. Smoke, however was all over.

The homeowners would like to thank the Good Samaritan. The mystery person was wearing a yellow t-shirt with a star in front and on the back, a dark beanie with what looks like Arizona written on it. What a hero!

“”I want to give him a hug. I’ll bring him to lunch. I’ll bring him dinner. I don’t know, I just want to thank him so much and let him know how thankful we are. My kids, my husband, we would be devastated if we lost our pets, let alone our home.”


And just another lovely reminder – there are angels all over watching and working towards a better humanity.
