A man and his puppy Chole are being credited with saving a woman’s life Tuesday after a fire broke out on Delmas Avenue near Downtown San Jose.
Tony Maniscalco was woken up by Chloe’s barking and quickly realized there was a fire next door and ran to help.
He ended up breaking a window to get inside and got a woman out.
“I think she knew something was on fire but I don't think she would have made it much longer, the smoke was very very thick,” said Maniscalco. “Glad I could help somebody out, makes me feel good.”
A fire captain said three adults were in the house, all got out safely.
