(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.

Always nice to se positive pit bull stories; It's really a good example of persuasion, it's all about culture, love, values, etc. I would imagine this dogs owners are what I adore to call: "good people."

Probably thought the kid was done cooking and started to eat him.
