That's what happened to one Choctaw County woman, but this story has a good ending.

Lyn Snowden said her dog took the phrase "man's best friend" to a different level. after a grease fire ignited in her Soper home Monday night and her dog Ringo came to the rescue.

"I'm extremely grateful, extremely grateful," Snowden said. "I rescued him a while back, and now he rescued me."

Fire damage was confined to the kitchen area.
