PHILADELPHIA -- An 80-year-old man died following a house fire in Philadelphia, and first responders say they found the victim's dog next to him, resisting to leave his owner.
Firefighters found the man unresponsive in the second-floor kitchen Saturday morning at home on East Logan Street. He died a short time later at an area hospital.
The dog resisted first responders as they tried to get him into a vehicle to be transported to the vet hospital.
The dog suffered smoke inhalation and remains in the care of veterinarians. The cause of the deadly fire is under investigation.
