(Newser) – Indianapolis has a new hero, but not the kind that wears a cape. This one has four legs and an affinity for bacon. Ace, a 2-year-old pit bull, woke up his deaf teenage owner by licking his face to alert him the house was on fire, say fire officials and the family. The 13-year-old was home alone and taking an afternoon nap when the fire, which ended up gutting the house, broke out. Both he and the dog got out.
