Cool Fish

I posted the other day about a cat that saved his savior’s life. But he did not put out the fire hisself!

All Headline News – Fish OK After Extinguishing Fire: EAGAN, Minn. – A smoke alarm summoned firefighters to a school in the middle of the night, but when they arrived the flames already had been put out. Dory took care of it.

Dory is a fish, a Betta kept in a vase on a desk in a third-grade classroom at Trinity Lone Oak Lutheran School.

A forgotten candle started a small fire on the desk on Jan. 24, setting off the smoke alarm and shattering the fish bowl, spilling enough water to put out the flames.

Firefighters found a few embers still glowing on the desk – and Dory still alive in a puddle.

OK, technically this fish did not put out the fire, nor save anyone. But I would like to think Sierra would do so for me.
