(Cleveland)  Fire crews say a pet Rottweiler named Zeus barked repeatedly until his family got out of their burning house safely.

The home on East 92nd Street was completely destroyed in the fire that broke out around 8:00AM.

Fire crews say the family was asleep at the time.

Spokesman Larry Gray says animals sense fire before humans do, and will make noise to alert their human companions.

No one was injured.
