Chelsea 3 Alarm Fire

They call a dog man’s best friend for this reason: Calie, a 7-year-old pit bull, refused to quit barking yesterday until Yvon Guillaume realized a three-alarm blaze was consuming the family’s Chelsea home.

“She’s a hero,” Guillaume said of the pet who started barking before the home’s fire alarms sounded.

Guillaume, 56, who has lived in the home he shares with his sister-in-law, two nephews and niece for 19 years, said he was alone when the fire broke out.

“It’s burned pretty good. As far as rebuilding it, that’s pretty close to on the fence,” Giancola said.

Another tenant of the building, Marie Yolette Casseus, said her son, Yves Casseus, “lost everything” in the fire and was left with “nothing but the clothes he was wearing.”

Guillaume was outside into the evening, talking to neighbors and firefighters while family members waited in the car with their courageous canine. Guillaume said firefighters told them it was unsafe to return.

The American Red Cross is helping his family find a hotel for the night and neighbors were quick to offer support.

“I left them my number in case they need anything,” neighbor Laurinda Burns said. “The

So why did the owner leave the dog in the house when he left? Why was she still inside when the firefighters arrived? Or am I reading this wrong? lol.

And poor Calie needs a diet
