HAPPY VALLEY, Oregon - Oscar is a cute Labradoodle who probably saved a home from burning to the ground yesterday.

On Wednesday, January 5, at 12:48 p.m in Happy Valley, Oscar looked out a window to see a van on fire and began barking continuously.

A neighbor came downstairs to find Oscar looking out the window at the fire which had spread to the home from a mini-van. Oscar's owner called 911 and firefighters extinguished the van's flames.

The van may be a complete loss.

There were no firefighter injuries, but one person home at the time, was treated at the scene and transported to a local hospital with minor respiratory problems.
