TRUE LIFE: Colon-Soto/Heath
October 13, 2014 Megan Heath was abruptly awoken at 3:30 a.m. by her yellow lab Toby barking in a crazy manner and in a tone she had never heard before. The barking was so unusual she was scared to exit her bedroom thinking someone had broken into her home. Making the situation even scarier, she and her two sons ages 8 and 13 were home alone as her husband works third shift. When Toby kept barking, she knew she had to find out what was happening. Upon opening her bedroom door, the smoke filled her room. She immediately woke up her children, got her two dogs and they all ran out of the home. As she was running out of her home the fire sirens were already going off at Bernville Fire Company which is located directly across the street from her home.
